since we are surrcjiu 

surrcjiunded by such a great cloud of 
witnesses5 let us throw off everything that hinders and 
the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with 
perseverance the race marked out for us. 

Each year an unstated tradition is fulfilled. 
President Jay Kesler presents a message, in 
which A Great Cloud of Witnesses, taken from 
Heb. 12:1, is his topic. He often speaks of 
Grace Olson and Don Odle. Of Thaddeus 
Reade and John Wengatz. These are the people 
who Jay claims have made an impressionable 
mark on Taylor, who have helped this univer- 
sity to become what it now is. This year, the 
Taylor community would like to add a new 
name to that roster — the name of he who orig- 
inated the list, Jay Kesler. 

Ending a 15-year reign as Taylor's guiding 
force, Kesler will put aside his president's hat 

ry of Taylor education, a sense of nostalgia is 
incorporated with the fact that this year we 
entered the 2 1 st century. 

With that, we saw the change of 80s Night 
into 90s. The final Christmas with Jay was 
held. And Jay was, rightly, a part of Nostalgia 
Night this year. Plus, the 1996 freshman class, 
ushered into Taylor as the class entering dur- 
ing the sesquicentennial celebration, will leave 
with Jay still at its helm as it becomes the 
class of 2000. 

Many of us now plan to leave and return to 
a Taylor of completed Kesler dreams. With ^ 
activities and visual arts centers still to come, 

in exchange for a chancellor's one. In honor of the campus will change into a place of memo-

As part of the 
"Post War 

Generation," Milo 
A. Rediger became 
one of the most 
influential people at Taylor University. Over 
five decades, Rediger held various roles, 
including instructor of philosophy and reli- 
gion, dean of students, academic dean and

in 1965, Rediger had already exerted great 
influence. As a way of improving the school, 
he wanted to develop the academic program. 
While he was a student at Taylor, Rediger had 
always felt as if students did not feel com- 
fortable raising certain questions, nor did he 
believe professors were willing to discuss 
issues that challenged Christianity. After 
becoming president, he tried to create an 
environment where "all truth is God's truth, 
and the Christian does not fear it— nor is he 
afraid of where it will lead him." 

After World War II, Rediger helped Taylor 
recoup from the aftermath of the war. He was 
very dedicated to creating a type of environ- 
ment where students and faculty could feel 
both academically and spiritually challenged.

his life story with the members of the 
Taylor community as he addresses 
them for the first time on March 13. 
Gyertson was chosen to follow Jay 
Kesler as president. 


Freshmen Nicole Schuiz, Kerry 
Peifer and Rachel Rosencrance clap 
along with the music in chapel on 
March 22. Many students men- 
tioned "worship" as their favorite part 
of chapel. 

The following are interviews with campus pastor assistants Cindy 
Norman and Chad Wilt, both seniors. The other two assistants 
are Missy Chamberliss and Andrew Draper, also seniors.

Cindy: Working with a new campus pastor and working with the 
variety of worship team people. Also, being accessible and being a 
mediator for the student body.

his sense of refreshment.

Cindy: There is a difference. I don't know how I can express it in 
words, though. Maybe the students take more ownership this year.

Cindy: I think it has been a huge success, which I was not antici- 
pating. It is so much more accessible to the students. We weren't 
sure if people would come, but we found that people will make 
time to worship, because there's that hunger and that thirst.

ilium: What was your personal highlight of the year, being a cam-

about other people.

"Yeah, he's really getting a kick out of this, telling us what to do. But 
he'll pay us back over the holidays by helping out at our store."

"The longer I have been away from home, the more I 
appreciate my parents, and getting to spend time with 
them is fun," says junior Tara Hodapp, whose parents 
came from Pewaukee, Wisconsin, to visit her. 
Although Tara's parents have come for Parents' 
Weekend all three of her years at Taylor, this year they 
brought one of her brothers along — to visit Butler 
University in Indianapolis. 

So, Tara really treasured the time when her parents 
were on campus for the collage concert, the Sunday 
morning worship service and to meet her professors. 
Tara says, "It was really good to have them meet my 
profs. So, now they can know who I'm talking about 
when I call home." 

Parents' Weekend, October 29-31, drew hundreds of 
parents to Taylor's campus to experience a variety of 
activities put on by the university. The first event was 
the collage concert, during which individual faculty 
and students and music department groups, such as 
Gospel Choir, University Chorus and the jazz band, 

Saturday events began for some families at a 7:30 
a.m. breakfast which was followed by devotions led by 
Dean of Chapel Richard Allen Farmer at 9 a.m. The 
rest of the day was open for visits with professors, 
trips to the general store, open house in dorms and a 
football game against Olivet Nazarene. 

That night, there was a Harvest Buffet banquet and a 
concert with Ken Medema. Jay Kesler spoke at two 
Sunday morning worship services. The early service 
was contemporary and the late was traditional. Taylor 
Sounds and the chorale performed during the second. 
And a brunch signified the end of the weekend and 
sent parents on their ways home. 
Summing up the weekend's importance, Tara says, "I 
think that I've really become friends with my parents 
since I've been at Taylor, and I realize how important 
our relationship is to me."

I airband 

"The Real World Upland" premiered on Taylor's campus 
at 8:15 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 7. The Airband theme was 
carried out the entire night with clips of Taylor student 
"Real World" stars "getting [more] real" as the show pro- 
gressed. Jerod Cornelius, president of Interclass Council, 
which puts on the annual event, talks about the inception of 
"The Real World" idea saying, "We just kinda brain- 
stormed a bunch of ideas. Then someone mentioned 'The 
Real World,' and we just ran with it from there. We thought 
it'd be fun to do that. It'd also be easy to apply to campus." 
And so they did. But pulling it all together wasn't as easy 
as the presentation of it looked. Cornelius describes this 
saying, "We had four or five different committees in charge 
of different aspects of Airband — the longest being the 
video aspect of it. We were assisted in the process by TCS 
[Taylor Cable System] with many hours of editing." But 
when it came down to it, Cornelius says, "I think it went 
over pretty well. I've gotten positive feedback from most 
people. And I think people loved the video aspect of it." 

About the competition segment of the night, the winning 
groups of the lip syncing/dancing contest included First 
East Wengatz in third place, perfonning "Madame 
Librarian" from the Music Man. The Backstreet Boys' 
group won second performing a combination of "Back 
Street's Back" and "It's Gotta be You." But the Upland 
Community Dance Troop drew in the first-place votes. 

The all senior UCDT, consisting of current Third West 
Wengatz guys and off-campus girls formerly residing on 
Third East Olson, performed "Praise You." The group con- 
sisted of Justin Berger, Eric Davis, Lora Erickson, Kevin 
Flaherty, Wes Gaines, Phil Gallagher, Lindsay Marcy, Josh 
McMullen, Ben Miller, Mark Mohrlang, 
Cindy Norman, Jayson Palm, Ruth 
Seward, Tiffany Sutton, Sarah West, 
Stephanie White and Leslie Wood. 

The night ended with a farewell song 
from Roger Raybum and a presentation to 
him for his three-and-a-half years of ser- 
vice to Taylor in the roles of campus safety 
officer and, most recently, sound engineer.

homecoming 1999 

An estimated 2,500 alumni and friends returned to Taylor for this year's Homecoming, Oct. 8- 
10. Even though the weather was rainy and temperatures were chilly, Marty Songer, director of 
alumni relations, says, "It was a great weekend." 

Songer adds, "Despite the crummy weather, the Taylor spirit just came through . . . people were 
out pushing their kids in strollers in the rain. They found ways to connect with each other." 

The alumni brunch was the highlight of the weekend, according to Songer. She enjoyed seeing 
"the spirits of those who were given awards and how God is working in their lives." 

The student co-chairs for the event were seniors Angle Reed and Joel Gates. Songer says, "We 
had so much fun working together." 

For the Homecoming football game, Taylor played St. Xavier College. The bad weather did not 
stop the crowds from coming, and Taylor beat St. Xavier, 7-3.

the moultons 

love and marriage 

and little Hannah 

The college experiences of seniors James and Stephanie 
Moulton have been a little different than those of most stu- 
dents. After an early marriage, the Moultons, both full-time 
students, were expecting their first child during the summer 
before their senior year. 

Baby Hannah Marie was bom on Stephanie's birthday, 
June 3, 1999. Stephanie says, "Having a baby has completely 
transformed our lives, our marriage, everything." 

Being parents during their senior years was not originally 
what the Moultons had expected. Stephanie says, "Children 
weren't an immediate plan for us. I wanted to maybe get a 
PhD, help with a ministry, just get involved." With a smile, 
she adds, "Hannah is probably an only child for as long as 
God allows it. " 

The Moulton family story started during their freshman 
year when James' friends encouraged him to ask Stephanie 
out. They started dating soon after. As James launches into 
the animated account, Stephanie says, "Not really daring, I 
mean, we didn't kiss for, like three months." 

"We were dating," James insists. "We just didn't tell peo- 
ple that we were." The story continues. 

During their sophomore year, James traveled to Australia 
on a Lighthouse trip. When he returned, he felt that God 
wanted them to be married soon. Through a series of strug- 
gling and questioning, the two reached the decision that, for 
both financial and romantic reasons, things would work out 
better if they were married immediately rather than wait for 
the summer. Stephanie says, "We talked to a lot of people. 
We talked to my parents about it and to our pastor." 

The intended result was to get married right away ("just on 
paper," Stephanie says), then wait until a ceremony during 
the summer to actually call themselves married. But, 
Stephanie says, "After we did it, we realized it was ival." It 
wasn't long before the Moultons had moved off campus and 

decided that they were, after all, married. A prominently dis- 
played picture of Stephanie in a white dress with a long train 
and James in a tuxedo is proof that the two did have a formal 
ceremony later. James says, "It was good; we really needed 
to do it." 

Life was adjusted again when the Moultons discovered that 
Stephanie was pregnant. The easy solution seemed to be for 
one of them to quit school and stay at home with the baby. 
But education is very important to the Moultons, and they 
decided to try to stay in school and take care of Hannah. 

Because Stephanie and James are not "traditional" stti- 
dents, it is hard for them to feel like they are a part of student 
life. James, who works at Cracker Barrel 25 hours per week, 
says, "I think there's a lot that we don't have in common 
with other students, but it's not that we can't relate. I under- 
stand guys doing weird things in the middle of the night." 

Stephanie adds, "Last year, it was fun to be married and 
different. This year, I've wanted to get involved again." 

Early fall semester, the Moultons are settling into the rou- 
tine of being students and parents. James comments that the 
adjustment was, at first, "really, really hard." He says, "For 
the first few weeks, it was a big event if we got a shower."' 

Because the Moultons share the same major, most of their 
classes are together, so there is a lot of necessary childcare. 
Stephanie said, "Our friends have been wonderful. Hannah is 
watched entirely by sttidents — some paid, some not."" 

Though the Moultons live a more difficult life than most 
students, the young family seems to be doing well. Hannah 
gurgles and kicks her tiny legs. Everyone is relaxed and smil- 
ing. Thinking back causes some laughs, as well as some pain. 
Through it all, Sundays keep the Moultons going. James 
says, "We hope for Sundays to be a time when God will pull 
us out of what we're doing and give us a focus." Stephanie 
smiles at her husband, nods and says, "That's our prayer."

ExplSinlng it to the outside world Is nearly Impossible, 
but for Taylor students, the annual Taylathon means a dose of healthy 
competition between the classes. Each team, consisting of men and 
women, bike and trike around a portion of the loop. The juniors were 
victorious with Ben Canida and Jeff DeKruyter leading most of the 
way. "We're pretty tough," commented junior team captain Mike Paull 
before the race. "We're the fastest by far. We're pretty smooth... ." 
The confidence of the juniors proved true, but not without a price to 
pay. DeKruyter's bike was Involved In an accident on the third turn 
leaving him slightly injured, but still able to help the juniors cross the 
finish line first. 

For the freshmen, Taylathon meant a few minor problems 
along the way, but ultimately a rewarding experience. "We've had a 
lot of bike problems while practicing, people taking our bikes... but 
we're doing pretty well," freshman Joe Wllhelml said. Despite their 
fourth place finish, the freshmen now loaded with experience are pre- 
pared to compete in Taylathon 2001. 

Taylathon is more than just a bike-and-trike race. It's about 
pride; It's a tradition unique to Taylor University. The annual 
Taylathon means weeks of 6 a.m. practices, possible Injuries and a 
culmination of the Taylor community on a beautiful day in May.

a world away 

On a scale from one to 10, Heidi Harbin ranked her trip to 
Italy a 10. Leaving for Orvieto, Italy, on Sept. 5, Heidi 
began her semester-long experience with a flight to Boston, 
where she met up with the rest of her group to continue her 
trip of approximately 20 hours. 

While there, Heidi experienced the art education aspect of 
the trip, as well as the culture. Heidi thinks back to all that 
she did from September to December — the restoration work 
done on the convent {where she lived those three-and-a-half 
months), the painting. Renaissance and Italian classes and 
the time spent outside the convent especially. 

Outside the school walls, Heidi "hung out a lot at the 
cafe." She explains that she had "at least one coffee break a 
day, if not more." She recalls the Full Moon Festivals, dur- 
ing which the students would join the townspeople in going 
to the park with blankets and refreshments. And Heidi also 
found a new appreciation for the church. Regularly attend- 
ing San Giovanale, a church that was a five-minute walk 
away, she realized that "[the church is] larger than just the 
modem evangelical movement." 

While there, Heidi toured parts of the country, including 
Florence, Milan, Padua, Rome, Sienna and Venice — her 
favorite being Sienna. But Heidi loved just hiking around 
the Orvieto area. She spoke of a monastery with gardens 
around it that she frequented. With that, Heidi claims, "My 
favorite part was just being in the beautiful culture with 20 

About the students she got to know on the trip, Heidi con- 
siders five of them close friends. One student is Sara Odam, 

a sophomore at Taylor. The other students are from Gordon, Messiah and Westmont. 
Sara and Heidi visited about 15 of their first semester friends at Messiah and Gordon 
on their way to Boston for spring break. All of the students in the program were art 
students, except for two. 

Heidi initially chose the trip for the location and course load. She says, "I always 
wanted to travel. And I always thought Italy sounded like an amazing place. Also, I 
wanted to have an intensively art semester. And I got that." 

That's not all she got. Heidi also came back with scores of nun stories. And Sister 
Palma, who Heidi affectionately calls "Crazy Nun Palma," is who she speaks of the 
most. Heidi tells how "Palma loved to use the two English words she knew, 'hello' 
and 'goodbye,' and how "she seemed like a sweet old lady, but she really did plumb- 
ing, and you'd always see her with tools." According to Heidi, this same sister 
taught five from the group to knit. 

Aside from the people, the culture and the art, Heidi gained a new understanding 
for "appreciating each moment fully." She said she "learned [this] because of the 
time spent on the mundane things, like walking around and sitting down. Those are 
some of my most wonderful memories." And Heidi insists, "Everyone should take 
advantage of a semester overseas. It's the best opportunity to experience another 
country. And it's fun!"

A unique SAC event. Stupid Human Tricks, was held on March 16 
during dinner at the dining commons. The DC was unusually filled with 
students of all ages, including off-campus seniors who ate there simply 
to experience the event. 

Senior Laura Pedemonti said, "I just wanted to go and support my 
roommate with her walking-on-her-hands trick." And it was fruitful for 
the Briarwood 2 J apartment dwellers to attend — for one of Pedemonti 's 
roommates, Jana Hunt, won the third place prize of two yo-yos for walk- 
ing on her hands. 
About the event's inception, Vinnie Manganello, who emceed the night, 
said, "We just wanted to interject some life into the DC, making it a 
pleasant dining experience for all patrons." 

The first and second place prizes were a pair of walkie talkies and a 
frisbee, respectively. The grand prize winner was J.R. Briggs for his 
chair-on-chin balancing act. Second place went to John Wachtmann, who 
performed a feat of dexterity by wrapping his anns around his head. 

Looking back, Manganello said, "I think [the Stupid Human Tricks 
event] went really well. The crowd was pretty into it, and we got some 
pretty sound acts."

erin syswerda 

the light 

at the end of tne runway 

With her 21 -inch long, straight blond hair wrestling its 
way to the ground, attempting proportion to her lean, 6- 
foot-tall body, the fact that she is a model is not hard to 
believe. But for Erin Syswerda, her lifelong dream of 
being a runway queen is not something she commonly 

"I don"t think it's that big of a deal." Having modeled 
since the age of 15, Erin says runway modeling comes 
naturally to her. "It just feels like I'm in my element. For 
me, it's really easy." 

Erin's naturalness on the runway is not the only reason 
she plans to pursue modeling professionally after gradua- 
tion. Mostly, Erin doesn't want to have regrets. She says, 
"Even if it only turns into a small career, it's something 
that I feel I'll always kick myself for if I don't do it. " 
She adds, "I'd rather get a flat out 'no' rather than won- 
der when I'm 40 if I could have done it when I was 22." 

However, Erin says that she is willing to forego the 
immediate revenue of New York to escape the harsh 
entry into modeling that the Big Apple would eagerly 
supply. That's why she went to Nashville during the 
summer of 1999 — to initiate herself to the modeling 
world there. Erin says she started in Nashville because 
"it's a lot nicer than New York. ' 

Now back at Taylor for her senior year, and her parents 
at home in Michigan, Erin reminisces about the 
Nashville trip saying, "My parents had always supported 
me, but they never really encouraged me in it until this 
summer." Looking back further, she remembers being 
allowed to model (at home) at an early age, 
explaining,"rd always dress up in my mom's clothes and 
stuff, and pretend I was something. " 

Without charm school lessons, Erin now looks to make 
that "something " a runway model. Having modeled pri- 
marily in bridal gowns, Erin relies on that experience as 
an indication of the modeling world at large. From that, 
she knows that a model's attitude changes with different 
music and each dress. It might also change as the day 
grows long. 

At the Notre Dame bridal shows, which she does each 
year, Erin typically wears four different dresses during 
each of the four shows repeated that day. Commenting 
about the backstage pace, she says, "You definitely can't 
sit down and take a few naps. But [the quick changes 
before returning to the runway] help energize you." 

The former Miss Blueberry for her hometown, Erin 
says she is now energized by daily exercise and a healthy 
diet. Many may have seen her race walking around cam- 
pus. And close friends know that she watches what she 
eats "for the most part," although she considers "mac 
and cheese" her "staple food when [she's] feeling sad." 
Erin adds that she's "a big fan of ice cream — Breyers' 
cookies and cream." Yet she admits, "I watch [indulging] 
for the most part. But I let myself have dessert at least 
once a week." 

Still, Erin thinks it's worth it. She says, "It gives you 
such a boost of confidence, to be something that people 
look at and are admiring." But she does not speak of 
only the positive aspects of the modeling world. Erin is 
leery of becoming fixated on her body size and image. 
She admits, "I would have to pray a lot for strength — 
being surrounding by it every day." But Erin encourages 
herself with the thought that she could "be a light to 
these people, a breath of fresh air."

how it h^)pens 

Everyone appreciates the hard work that actors, actresses and directors put 
into malcing a Taylor theatre production happen. But what really happens 
behind the scenes? The Ilium staff decided to find out. 

hammer and nail 

Cory Rodeheaver, shop technician 
ilium: What is your official title? 

cory: This year, Fm the shop technician, but next year I'll be the techni- 
cal director. Right now, I'm in charge of doing the actual building for 
what we are doing, and I supervise all the students who are working on 
the set. Next year, I'll be overseeing students in other areas, too. 
ilium: What kind of hours do you work? 

cory: It depends on the show and schedule. Usually I'm here all during 
the day, but students come in the evening, so I come back in then. The 
job takes lots of hours. The final week before production, you're putting 
in close to 80 to 100 hours. 

ilium: What is the biggest challenge for a set this year? 
cory: "Alice in Wonderland" was somewhat complex, because we were 
using the three turntables. Each show has its own challenges, though, 
so I can't really say one is more challenging than the other. Every 
show is different; every show we do something that I've never done 


Johannah Graves, costumes chair 
ilium: What does your job entail? 
johannah: I work with the director to 
decide who will wear what. For this play 
["Marvin's Room"] the assistant directors 
had a really good idea of what they wanted. 
ilium: How many hours does this all take? 
johannah: It depends on the show. This 
play ["Marvin's Room"] was really easy. It 
took maybe two hours total. But for the last 
play ["Alice in Wonderland"], I was work- 
ing for between six and eight hours a day. 
ilium: What is the most challenging cos- 
tume you have worked on? 
johannah: Last year, I had to put together a 
really fancy wedding dress for a ball gown. 
And the animal costumes were really chal- 
lenging for "Alice in Wonderland."

ilium: What show did you work on? 
david: I worked on "Marvin's Room." 
ilium: What did your job entail? 

david: It entailed pretty much [work]. I was given a list of necessary 
props, so I had to put together whatever I thought was appropriate ... 
I did a lot of shopping. I went out every day getting stuff.

david: I would get there about two hours before [it started] to 
rearrange everything, because we always left everything like it was

thing completely off the stage. I was moving big things, like beds.

Katye Bennett, co-chair of makeup 
ilium: Which play did you work on? 

katye: For "Alice in Wonderland," I was makeup co-chair and in charge of 
hair. For "Marvin's Room," I was an assistant director. 
ilium: What is your favorite part of the job? 

katye: Just the interaction with everyone and getting to watch it [the play] 
develop. It's great to know you had a part in getting it to work. 
ilium: How much time does the job take? 

katye: We usually start by the tech day, at the latest. We go through a pre- 
liminary run of make-up and hair for each character 
ilium: How about before the actual shows? 

katye: It was such a huge cast. I had to start at, like, four in the afternoon 
and still was barely done in time. 
ilium: What was the biggest challenge this year? 

katye: Figuring out how the makeup was going to be done. We were able 
to teach most of the characters to do their own makeup. Also, just the 
nature of "Alice in Wonderland." There are so many animals.

David C. Dickey 

February 1946 — March 2000 

David Dickey, director of Taylor's Zondervan 
Libraiy, was reported missing on Sunday, March 
19. by his wife. Barbara. A professor of music at 
Taylor, Barbara called the police after her hus- 
band did not return from a church conference in 

Four days later, Dickey's body was found by 
fishermen in Geist Reservoir. His car had been 
found the day before in a church parking lot 
three miles away. 

The Taylor community was alerted to the situa- 
tion by a campus-wide e-mail when Dickey was 
still labeled "missing." His ftineral was held on 
March 28 at First Presbyterian Church in Muncie 

where both of the Dickeys served as elders. A 
memorial service was held at Taylor on Friday, 
April 7. during chapel. 

President Jay Kesler, Dwight Jessup, vice pres- 
ident of academic affairs, and Laurie Wolcott 
spoke during the chapel service. Wolcott began 
serving as interim library director upon Dickey's 

Dickey began working in the Zondervan 
Library in 1 972, seven years after graduating 
from Taylor. He was a founder of the Upland 
Historical Society and a leader in the Private 
Academic Library Network of Indiana (PALNI). 

I first met David Dickey when I came to Taylor in 
1967. David had completed his degree in library sci- 
ence and was working in another college library. 
However, he loved theatre and had a special relation- 
ship with Mrs. Greathouse, head of Taylor's speech 
and drama department. Mrs. G, as everyone called her, 
had hired David to work on set constmction. At that 
time, theatre productions were done in the Helena 
Building, and sets were built in the basement of MCW 
[Magee-Campbell-Wisconsin dormitory]. The first 
time I saw David, he was on the floor building a flat 
for Mrs. G's upcoming production of "Tartuffe. " His 
interest in theatre did not end with building sets. He 
attended every Taylor theatre production and always 
had insightful and supportive comments to offer actors 
and directors. Attending a professional theatre event 
with David was an unforgettable experience. If it was 
a comedy, no one laughed more delightedly than 
David. If it was a serious drama, David was enthralled. 
and his responses were infectious. 

Throughout his life, David had a \ariely of interests. 
but most of them stemmed either from his kne of the 
arts or his love of libraries. He was an excellent pho- 
tographer. One photography project which he complet- 
ed some time ago involved taking slides of all the 
courthouses in Indiana and developing a lecture about 
the unique architecture of these structures. He also 
made an extremely complete photographic record of 
Zondervan Library from the time of the groundbreak- 
ing to the dedication of the completed building. 

Film was another interest David had. He developed 
and taught an honors film course. He attended films 
regularly and kept up with the latest trends in cinema. 
At the same time, he knew a great deal about film his- 
tory and appreciated classic Hollywood cinema, as 
well as films from many other countries. Going to see 
a film with David and Barbara was always an intcllcc- 

In Memoriam 

tually and aesthetically stimulating experience. 

For more than a decade, David had the responsibility 
of booking the Performing Artist Series for Taylor 
University. His commitment to the series was often 
demonstrated in his ceaseless efforts to create and sus- 
tain interest in the quality programs he booked. He 
was especially delighted by the opportunity to meet 
and entertain artists from different countries and larger 
metropolitan areas. 

David was an engaging conversationalist who was 
able to interact comfortably with a wide spectrum of 
people. His enthusiasm and energy often seemed 
boundless. He had a unique gift for caring and com- 
passion. He understood that love was not something 
you said but something you did. David lived out the 
implications of caring for a wide variety of people 
from different walks of life who had different needs. If 
they needed a pie, David baked one. If they needed 
transportation, David drove them to their destinations. 
If they needed a cataloguer to help them organize a 
library, David volunteered his services. If they needed 
conversation. David visited them. He met people 
where they were and ministered to them at the point of 
their greatest needs. 

David was "a librarian's librarian. He was never 
too busy to stop and answer any question a faculty 
member or student posed. His love of trivia was an 
in\ aluable mental resource. It often seemed that there 
was no topic under the sun that David had not read 
about, and he always knew how to help you find the 
information you required. He loved books both for 
themselves and for their contents, and his lo\ e was 

Zondervan Library will never be the same with 
David gone. We miss you. Da\ id. and pray that light 
perpetual shines upon you.

Hayford's death was announced to the student 
body during chapel the following day. A memori- 
al service was held that night, giving students a 
chance to express their grief Hayford "s funeral 
was at Stone Haven United Methodist Church in 
Milford, Mich., and was well-attended by Taylor 

Hayford was a Christian education major at 
Taylor and lived in Swallow Robin Hall. She is 
survived by her parents and two sisters. 
Hayford's family is from Milford. Mich.

Strong and Dedicated ... an incredible woman of our 

Lord Jesus Christ. 

Her mission in life was to serve God with 

every part of her being. 

Through each trial, she found the good. 

Christ breathed through her every word. 

Ashley was our inspiration, encourageinent and 

source of joy. 

Her laugh was contagious. 

Her shoulder was always there to C17 on. 

And her mouth was filled with words of wisdom. 

The Spirit of God captivated her mind as 

she pursued her dreams. 

She was an accomplished track runner and 

basketball MVR 

An "A" student who was not only popular, funny and 

outgoing, but also kind to every person 

she came in contact with. 

Colorado was her favorite place in the world to be. 

She dreamed of one day living there so she could 

hike in the mountains and bask in 

God's beautiful creation. 

Each of us was left with an incredible memory that 

time cannot erase. 

And a motivation to serve God with all that we are. 

Her favorite Bible verse was, 

"Rejoice in the Lord always," 

And she lived that out with amazing passion. 

Her goal in life was to hear Jesus say, "Well done 

my good and faithful servant." 

And on that sun-filled day of Januai7 30, 2000, we 

all know she heard those very words 

from the mouth of Jesus Christ!

"Anyone who receives instruction in the word must share all 

good things with his instructor " Galatians 6:6 
As I reflect upon my time at Taylor, I can think of hundreds of 
people and experiences that I am unbelievably thankful for. 
There is one particular group, though, that has made an especial- 
ly big difference in my life, and I would like to devote this space 
to say thank you to these special people. They are the men of 
Taylor University, and ironically, at first I did not value either 
their friendship or the wisdom that they could offer to me. 
As a freshman, my mind was focused on one thing and one 
thing only: "fellowship" with my 900 new female neighbors. I 
certainly had no desire to sit around with a bunch of guys hold- 
ing hands and sharing my feelings. But after falling on my face a 

few times and learning that freshmen can't compete with off- 
campus upperclassmen in the game of love, a curious thing hap- 
pened. God started using my wingmates, PA's and professors to 
impact the way that I wanted to live my life. Looking back. I see 
that these brothers in Christ taught me more about Christ's love, 
and what it truly means to seek Him, 
than anyone else has in my life. 
So please accept my sincere thanks, and know that you have 
made all the difference in at least one young man's life. You have 
listened when what I really needed was a supportive ear, spoken 
when I began to stray from the path, prayed without ceasing and 
loved an imperfect sinner when he didn't deserve it. Each one of 
you has been my instructor, and this is my attempt to share all 
good things with you. I love you all.

I have had four wonderful spring breaks during my years here at 

Taylor. They have always been wonderful times of travel, going 

deeper in relationships and have left me with some wonderful 

memories. Here are a few of them. 
Freshman year: Honduras with the Track and Field team. Late at 
night Kristin Horn was dared to kiss me while I was sleeping out- 
side in a hammock. Somehow she missed and ended up "layin' a 
big one" on Bryan Clark, by far the hunkiest sprinter on the team. 

Weird. ..because I slept with my name tag on. ..well, whatever. 

Favorite picture: Craig Jaggers and I singing "No woman, no cry" 

adding our own verses about how hard coach was working us. 

Sophomore year: Camping and mountain biking with Bobby 

"booby" Whisman, Jason "gomer" Palm, Justin "berger" Berger 

and Eric "hot-body" Davis in North Carolina. While getting caked 

with mud and thoroughly exhausting our bodies during the day, 

we shared stories and played many a card game by the firelight at 

night. My favorite picture: all five of us crammed into Bobby's 

Celica hatchback with all our gear and five bikes somehow 

strapped to the top and back of that tiny car. 

Junior year: Road trip with Troy Tiberi, Loren Kimble, Chris 

Chiero and John Molineaux. Destination: WEST. We joined a 

high school prom already in progress at the Mt. Rushmore visitor 

center (my first dance since 7th grade, and interestingly enough, I 

hung out near the refreshments for all of this one too!). We 

watched "A River Runs Through It" while driving through 

Montana (along with "Star Wars" and everyone's Disney favorite, 

"Heavyweights"). Favorite picture: All five of us crammed into 

Chiero's minivan (minus the middle seat) with all our gear and 

goods and a TVA^CR plugged into the lighter.

Senior year: I'm writing this senior reflection on an overcrowded 
Greyhound headed back east from Seattle. Josh "shukie" 
McMullen, "hot-body" and myself have spent this last week 
checking out options and possibilities for after graduation (i.e. try- 
ing to figure out what the heck we're going to do with our lives!). 
We sat next to a lady with a personal bubble the size of Alaska, 
met with Gordon Fee and looked at the cartoons on J.I. Packer's 
door (both Bible scholars extraordinaire), talked about living in an 

intentional community and gazed in awe at Mt. Rainier through 

the cherry blossoms on U.W.'s campus. I got invited to a "legalize 

marijuana" party, and Josh and Eric got asked if they were gay. 

They're not. 

We stayed with Matt Ghormley, a graduate of the Christian Ed. 

program in '98, who is currently working in landscape lighting 

before he heads off to Regent Seminary. One evening as we were 

catching up with each other, he shared what he's been learning 
during this year of just "working and living." He mentioned how 
tough it's been being out of a formal ministry setting for this year. 
He talked about struggling with feeling like he should be "doing" 
more. He also talked about how good it's been to rest in the anns 
of the Father simply as His child; to leam that nothing is as signif- 
icant as being a child of God. So that's what I leave you with. 

your identity as a child of God. There is no greater calling. 
Oh yeah. ..favorite picture: The three of us crammed into my par- 
ents '78 Honda Civic (smaller than a VW Bug) with all our gear 
and homework, eating the greasiest hamburgers and saltiest fries 
in front of the world famous "Dick's Drive-In."

I am a richer person than I was four years ago, rich in 
invaUiable relationships that formed during my time at Taylor. 
I was raised in Upland and grew up to cherish it, but I disliked 
the thought of spending my four years of college in "com 
country." I desired freedom from my parents 
and a fresh environment. 
Only a Sovereign God could have known how I would be 
enriched by choosing to stay. I have had a solid education at 
Taylor that prepared me to be fully competent and effective in 
the working world. More importantly, I have had the privilege 
of knowing some fantastic people who freely gave uncondi- 
tional support and encouragement. It is these relationships that 
I will remember most about my college years. 
I will remember my wing. Second Center Olson, which was 
prevailingly known for general silliness and constant violation 

of quiet hours. I will remember intramural football, where I 
first learned how to be ferocious while wearing a hair ribbon. I 
will even remember playing with dead cats in dissection lab, 
as gross as that sounds. 
Above all, I will remember the people who did these things 
with me. I have learned that college is about more than getting 
an education. It's about meeting people and then getting per- 
sonal. It's about loving your neighbors enough to truly care 

about the tiny details in their lives. 

Taylor provided the nurturing environment that allowed my 

relationships to sprout and flourish. I know these friendships I 

formed will last a lifetime, even if only through prayers for 

one another. These relationships are tme treasures from God, 

and are the most priceless riches I received 

while attending Taylor

It is Strange to realize that suddenly we have earned a title like 

"senior" — and with it some degree of respect (maybe), quite a 

few expectations and an endless barrage of questions about future 

plans. "Professor" is not such an intiinidating word anymore, and 

we find ourselves stopping by our advisor's office even when we 

are not in desperate need of his or her signature. Hopefully we 

have started to realize that chapel is a privilege. Upland can be 

entertaining and sometimes the DC is something to look forward 

to. Everyone is not a stranger anymore, and we wish we had time 

to get to know those who still are. 

During these years I have struggled with depression and found 

that the Lord is truly the lifter of my head; I have begged Him for 

wisdom and have been reassured that He orders my steps and 

"knows the way I take" (Job 23:10). I have needed His healing 

physically, His renewal mentally and His comfort spiritually. I 

have learned a little more of what Counselor means - the One who 

"wipes away the tears from all faces" (Isaiah 25:8) and stands in 

the place of absent mothers and fathers. Sobbing requests for 

friends, family members and professors have been carried to His 

throne by the strength of those around me. I have been encouraged 

to seek Him, have learned to be more thankful and know that 

when and how are His choice and why will probably not be 

answered yet. I am ceitain that 1 do not know how this story ends, 

but am excited, not anxious, to watch Him write the ending and 

am counting on the grace of the living God to shelter and sustain 

me for the remainder of the love affair.

"Yet, O Lord. You are our Father We are the clay. You are 

the potter: we are all the work of Your hand. " 

Isaiah 64:10 

When I think of my time at Taylor, my heart is filled with 

praise and thanks for God's work, constant provision and 

plan. These past four years have been a time of refinement 

as the Lord has continually taught me and shown me more 

of Himself through Taylor's community. I came to Taylor 

scared and fearful, but He certainly worked on me and 
blessed me in more ways than I could have ever imagined. 
My memories overflow with God's goodness as I reflect 
upon my experience here of lifelong friends and professors, 
papers and tests, wing retreats and activities, Airbands and 
Taylathons, Lighthouse and student teaching experiences, 
chapels and conferences. Yes, there were difficult times, lit- 
tle sleep and much work, but as our president Dr. Jay 
Kesler said, "He has blessed me to the 
point of embarrassment!" 
So now this goal I once only dreamed of is complete, flill 
of memories and forever friends. I look ahead to the future, 
but not as I did four years ago. Instead of fear, I look for- 
ward with great anticipation and hope knowing God's faith- 
fulness will continue to shape all of us as He takes us 
places to serve in ways and with people we never have 
before. My prayer is that with this senior class we will con- 
tinue to be soft and sensitive clay in our Father's hands, 
wanting nothing more that to know Him more, and to pas- 
sionately follow His leadership by serving 

people for His Kingdom. 

"Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. 

His love endures forever "

The past four years at Taylor have meant more to me than a 
few short paragraphs can describe. I came as an average 
Christian, and I am leaving stronger, knowing why I claim 
Christianity. I came with fresh wounds from hurtful relation- 
ships, and I am leaving with a better understanding of relation- 
ships and a handful of friends that will be true for eternity 
come distance, hardship or misunderstanding. I came as Sandra 
Lynn Buehler. and I am leaving as Sandra Lynn Fyffe. The 
changes in my life have been significant and bear witness 
to the faithful hand of God. 
A wise word of advice was given to me by my youth pas- 
tor's wife when I graduated from high school. She told me not 
to settle for being spoon-fed but to take an active role in my 
education and experiences. As we all know, Taylor is not the 
summer camp it feels like for the first couple weeks. The more 
you put into it, the more you will get out of it. As I reflect now, 
the times that have been the most meaningful to me were the 
late-night heart-to-hearts with dear friends (and the exhaustion 
the next day), experiencing everything from various service 
opportunities to a weekend in Chicago with a group of nutty 
music majors, early morning meetings with God and the pride 
of holding a (just in time!) finished paper. I have been blessed 
beyond belief with the privilege to attend Taylor. 
As I leave knowing that I can't stay forever (though I'd like 
to!), I take with me the nourishment received from a Christ- 
centered community. I take with me knowledge and pray for 
understanding and wisdom. I take with me a husband with 
whom I have committed to loving and serving those around us. 
I take the lessons I've learned and the experiences I've had and 
pray that God will use them and will continue to bless and 
impact Taylor students with the wonder of His faithfulness. 



seniorr r 


* by kira stoltenberg 

The people walking offstage clutching their hard earned diplomas 
are leaving Taylor much changed from the anxious freshmen who 
arrived four years ago. As freshmen we entered with many expecta- 
tions about the next four years. As a senior looking back, I realize 
that most of what I learned was not expected at all. 
Being a student at Taylor has presented me with many opportuni- 
ties. I have lived on a wing with forty other women, in another coun- 
try, in an apartment and in a house with six other truly beautiful 
ladies. These living situations presented their own different opportu- 
nities as well. Taylor taught me both in the classroom and out. 
I entered Taylor on fire for Social Work and perused it for all four 
years. When I entered Taylor I expected to have all of my questions 
answered. 1 am leaving with many more questions but an understand- 
ing that there are few black and white issues. It is not just okay, but 
good, to struggle through these issues. Our professors gave us knowl- 
edge and, at the same time, challenged us to think and to see many 

different perspectives. 1 also learned from my peers. 
God has taught me so much about himself through different friend- 
ships I have made through Taylor. Some friends just remained 
acquaintances, some were close but eventually drifted away and oth- 
ers will remain friends for a lifetime. The Bible describes different 
attributes of God, and I have experienced them to a certain degree 
during prayer and quiet time. However, those attributes have become 
most real and personal to me through the example of friendship. 
Friends from all levels can reveal God's character. It might be an 
acquaintance who genuinely smiles at you when you are having a bad 
day or a friend who you know you can call at three in the morning if 
you need to talk. Simple acts that we do as a friend are a reflection of 
God's love. Relationships, like God, are very mysterious to me. 
There is much joy found in both giving and receiving friendship. 
My friends at Taylor have taught me about God's love which is 
patient and perseveres. In the Bible God gives us examples of using 
brothers and sisters in Christ when dealing with confrontation. God 
used Paul to confront the Corinthians in love. My friends have tnily 
taught me the delicate line of confronting in love. After it was over I 
still knew they loved me, yet I realized the need to change an area in 
my life. My friends helped me to understand how God desires to 

change us in a loving manner. 
Taylor has provided me with many opportunities that have opened 
my eyes to solidify my identity in Christ and expand my world view. 
My professors have taught me how to challenge things from a faith- 
based perspective and have reinforced this in their own lives and their 
interactions with us. My friends have also taught me about being cre- 
ated in the image of God. I am sad to leave Taylor and my relation- 
ships here, but I do not look back with regret. Taylor was a very 
important step that has equipped me to move forward as a better ser- 
vant of Christ in evei^ aspect of my life.

TAYLOR is community. Yes, we've all heard this acclamation hun- 
dreds of times. In fact, I've "preached" this sennon on numerous occa- 
sions during my time as a campus tour guide. But what does community 
mean, and more specifically, who is it comprised of? This is the opportu- 
nity I've been waiting for. Allow me, for a moment, to salute those who 
have held the light along our path through TAYLOR. Here I offer a token 
of gratitude to those who have illuminated our Christian lives and made 
our TAYLOR careers unforgettable: 

Thanks to Dr. Charles for teaching me to love the Lord my God with all 
my MIND. He urged us to avoid the anti-intellectualism that often per- 
vades popular Christianity. 
Thanks to Dr. Fanner for preparing our hearts for corporate worship. 
Thanks to Dr. Heth for teaching the New Testament with unparalleled 

excitement! (And for teaching us not to water-ski on one leg.) 

Thanks to Linda, the cleaning lady, for cleaning where no Wengatz man 

had cleaned before — the bathroom. 

Thanks to Andre Broquard for his guidance. 

Thanks to Dr. Davis for blessing us with 32 notes on the banjo. Thank 

you for playing anything with strings. 

Thanks to Mickey for looking the other way once or twice. 

Thanks to whomever was in charge of changing the name from Personal 

Touch Staff (PTS) to CREW. Now if we could only work on PROBE. 

Thanks to Dr. White for opening his home up for weekly Bible studies 

(we needed to get away from the dungeon somehow). 
Thanks to Dr. Siler for the enthusiasm that he brought to the classroom. 

You truly teach unto God! (In a second!) 
Thanks to Beth and Rick Muthiah for taking me under their wings. Your 

abode was my home away from home. 
Thanks to the infinite wisdom of someone in the administration for tak- 
ing down the "Flexing of Florida." Its presence has not been missed. 
Thanks to Dr. Shultz for using his musical gifts to ornament 
our chapel addresses. 
Thanks to Professor Collymore for impressing upon us the significance 
that the Old Testament holds in our Christian walk. (Thanks also for let- 
ting me date one of the "sisters.") 
Thanks to Jan Hagar for illuminating the Admissions office with your 
encouraging and comforting smile while you were with us. 
Thanks to Paul Lightfoot for adorning our campus with 
God's florid creation. 
Finally, thanks to Jay for being a president that we could all approach. 
Thank you for leading us.

The students at Mississinewa High School in Gas City often 
see a unique cheering section at their football and basketball 
games. The guys from First Bergwall have been supporting them 
for the past two years — hosting tailgate parties, performing 
their own cheers, laying down and spelling "MHS" with their 
bodies on the court at halftime and planning an annual open 
house in the school's honor. 

"We get requests for cheers," senior and First Berg PA Dave 
Kauffman says. The MHS students love it. They even reserve 
seats for First Berg in the students" section at the games. Senior 
John Aoun says, "We get to influence these high school kids in a 
good way while having a blast on the weekend."

Few open houses can claim a ten-year history, but Second Bergwall's annual Sigma Beta 
Fest can. "The tradition was created in 1989... in an effort to attract students to the newly 
finished Bergwall Hall." PA Eric Barnes says. 

Held evei7 November (24), each room features a different theme or game. Brock 
Maxwell, Richard Fountain and Jonathan Kurtz hosted "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire." in 
which participants could win movies, candy and other prizes. Ethan Van Drunen, David 
Culley and David Whittington dubbed their room "The Haircut Room," and willing visitors 
received a free haircut from a professional stylist. 

Barnes estimated this year's attendance at 300 to 400 people, about the same as in 1989. 
"In its first year, the event attracted over 400 students from all over campus, as well as Jay 
Kesler," Barnes says. Open house guests were treated to karaoke and other impromptu per- 
fomiances from the lounge, in addition to lots of food donated by area businesses.

Evan H. Bergwall

Taylor University in 
1939. He then pursued graduate studies at 
Yale Divinity School, New York University, 
Emory University and Oxford University. 

of Taylor 
in 1951. 
Both the 
and board

were extremely divided over a disagreement, 
and the university's financial situation was 
unstable. Bergwall reluctantly accepted the 
office and invited Milo A. Rediger to return 
as academic dean soon after. 

Bergwall resigned in 1959 to return to the 
Methodist ministry. Wilbur Cleveland, fonner 
editor of the Taylor Magazine and other uni- 
versity publications, wrote, "During his years 
at Taylor, Dr. Bergwall became deeply appre- 
ciated by alumni and many other friends of 
the university for his intellectual and spiritual 
leadership, deep sincerity and devotion to the 
strengthening of Taylor's entire program." 
Bergwall Hall, named in honor of President 
Bergwall, was built in 1989. 

The women of Third Bergwall know 
how to watch an NCAA basketball tour- 
nament game — with a big screen TV, 
lots of foods and tons of friends. On 
March 16, they did just that, with their 
second annual March Madness open 

Along with the big screen TV, video 
projector and stereo set up for the game, 
the women decorated the lounge with 
streamers and teain logos. The decora- 
tions extended down the hall as well. 
"Each room is given a different team, and 
they decorated with the teams' logos and 
colors," junior Julie Stemer explains. 

Local restaurants donated food, includ- 
ing pizza, subs and meal vouchers, and 
the women organized shooting games to 
see who would win the vouchers. 

According to Stemer, many people 
attended the event — more than last year. 
She estimates, "A few hundred came

The students who participated in the Fourth 
Bergwall formal pick-a-date in December weren't 
exactly themselves — each person was given a 
role to play as part of a mystery dinner. 

The mystery was set in a train car in 1930s 
Paris, so participants wore period clothes, many 
in keeping with their character. Junior Sheryl 
Thrush loved the costumes. "The best thing about 
it was getting to dress up," she says. Thrush's 
character was named Mary, an artsy writer. Her 
date, junior Sam Hartman, played a fighter pilot 
and war hero, but he was also smuggling guns to 
Germans and running a prostitution ring. 

After the meal and mystery, many couples went 
roller-skating in their costumes, and this activity 
was Hartman "s favorite part. "I really liked the 
roller-skating," he says. "I haven't been roller- 
skating in a long time."

Many wings have unique events for freshmen ori- 
entation, and Cellar Enghsh is no exception. 
Freshmen are told to meet at the PA"s apartment for 
dinner at the DC and arrive to fmd the rest of the 
girls on the wing already there. Upperclassmen are 
all wearing "70s clothes, and freshmen are given 
similar outfits, too. Then everyone walks to the DC 
for dinner and Ivanhoe's for dessert afterwards. 

PA Adrienne Brooks thinks the best thing about 
the evening is "the surprise factor. It's very shock- 
ing." She also loves the conversation. "We're 
developing relationships in our mothers' clothes," 
she says. 

Freshman Lindsey Tatone had a great time, too. 
She says, "I was totally surprised. It was really 
cool for freshmen orientation because everyone 
did it. They didn't make us do it by ourselves."

bathtubs, soda and the Christmas (Tpen house 

Though most wings in EngHsh don't decorate very much for 
the hall's Christmas open house, INE has a tradition wrapped up 
in the decorating. And it involves the bathroom. 

For the three years senior PA Bethany Baldwin has lived on 
the wing, the tradition has been the same. The women of INE 
pull couches, string lights and decorate their bathroom. But the 
highlight of it all lies in the bathtub, which is filled to the brim 
with chilling sodas. Baldwin says, "After the cleaning ladies 
clean the tub, we don't use it until the open house, then we put 
drinks in it." 

Christmas is a big event for INE. And decorating the bathroom 
makes it memorable to others. Baldwin says, "It's just known 
that we do it. And we're basically the only ones that decorate."

When Second South EngHsh PA Linnea Goddard started thinking about how much fun 
guys seem to have wrestling, she decided that girls could have just as much fun. So from 
that came the Second South Wrestling Federation. It involves four separate events: 
thumb wrestling, arm wrestling, leg wrestling, and full body contact wrestling. 

Linnea, the "Twisting Terror," says that women from the wing were allowed to enter as 
many categories as they wanted. The tournament was single elimination and the best two 

out of three rounds determined winners for 
the first three categories. For the full body 
contact division, the winner was deter- 
mined by sudden death — whoever pinned 
the other first was the winner. Nasty tac- 
tics like biting, hair pulling and purposely 
aiming for sensitive areas were outlawed. 
The contestants wrestled for a maximum 
of ten minutes per bout. If neither were 
pinned by that time, the winner was deter- 
mined by a best three out of five game of 

This year's proud champions were: fresh- 
man Kat Loutrel in the thumb wrestling 
division, sophomore Martha Burrus for her 
powerful arms, leg wrestling went to 
junior Stephanie Webber, and full body 
contact was taken away by none other than 
the "Twisting TeiTor" herself, Linnea. "I 
won on my defensive skills," Linnea 
claims, "I never pinned anyone — I guess 
I'm just really good at rock-paper-scis- 
sors!" The final bout in that match was 
with Carrie Swinburne, a.k.a. the "Fast 
Forward Frenzy."

For most students, studying is hard work, so the women of 
Second Center English get together weekly for study breaks. 
Hosted each week by a different set of roommates, these breaks 
have been a tradition for the past two years. "Everyone comes to 
relax and chat for a while, sort of a 'regrouping" time, " PA Laura 
Rosenwinkel says. 

These women played the roommate game and celebrated holi- 
days. They had visits from Jay and a massage therapist. But 
what they do is not as important as the fact that they are togeth- 
er. "I personally enjoy them because it's rare that we get the 
entire wing together all at once," Rosenwinkel says.

cornnem ^^ 

Second North English wanted to do something different 
for a pick-a-date this year. When junior PA Laura Newton 
heard about "Comfusion," she decided that it would make 
a great choice for her wing's fall pick-a-date. 

Newton says, "It was really fun." 

Comfusion is a church-sponsored event that is used to 
raise money. The church makes a giant maze out of a field 
of com, then lets groups come and try to find their ways 
through it. Newton says, "It was out in the middle of 
nowhere, obviously, in the middle of a cornfield." 

When the group aixived, they set out in groups of two, 
four and six. Each group was given a flag to hold up if 
they got lost. Also, along the way there were stations with 
mailboxes containing jokes and com trivia. When a group 
finally made its way to the end of the maze about an hour 
and a half later, it got the chance to ring a large bell. Then 
the whole group joined together again to enjoy a camptlre. 

The most memorable part of the night for Newton was 
"a tiny fender-bender on the way there involving two of 
the cars." Luckily, there were no injuries. 

The group enjoyed the rest of the night in safety. 
Newton says, "I think the PA next year will do it again."

Tradition is a big part of Third English. Like previous years, the floor held 
ts annual broomball pick-a-date. This year's event, held on Nov. 20, began 
iifferently for each wing. After eating at the DC, Third North ladies and 
heir dates got together for a "dessert party" in the English Hall lounge and 
decorated their brooms. Third Center took the date on the road early, having 
iupper at Dick Clark's American Bandstand. And Third South couples ate 
)n the wing. After eating, eveiyone met at the ice arena in Indy, which they 
lad reserved to play their yearly game. 

With decorative brooms in hand, the teams warmed up outside the rink by 
loing jumping jacks and other exercises. Once on the ice, the teams raced 
iround trying to see who could sweep the most balls into the goal. During 
)ne round, all of the players were tied to their dates, making it much more 
lifficult to get around. When their two-hour reservation was up, they sepa- 
■ated ways. Discussing the group she left with, Ja'Niece McCraw, Third 
Center PA, says, "It was the best time ever. After broomball, a group of us 
vent to Steak 'N' Shake, which was so much fun."

getting awaylrom it all 

Third North English PA Melissa Holtje wanted to plan a spring retreat for her 
wing, but she wanted to surprise her wingmates, too. So, on May 12, with bags 
packed for the weekend, they loaded into cars and followed their PA. Holtje drove 
the long way around the loop, her destination being the gym parking lot, but her 
wingmates didn't know that. "With every turn, the girls in my car got quieter and 
quieter, " Holtje says. 

When they arrived at the gym, Holtje's father was waiting with her family's RV. 
Once everyone and all the bags were inside, he drove to Holtje's home in Racine, 
Wisconsin. Holtje says this trip, taking almost five hours, was the farthest Third 
North has ever gone for a wing retreat. 

The women spent the weekend riding the Holtjes' four-wheeler, tanning, soaking in 
the hot tub, shopping at outlet malls and watching movies. Saturday morning includ- 
ed a special devotional time, where Holtje handed the women letters they had writ- 
ten to Jesus in the fall. After reading them over and reminiscing, they each wrote a 
second letter. 

The entire weekend was very meaningful, according to Holtje. "We've never done 
a spring retreat before," she says, "and I think it was the best time to come together 
and reaffirm what this year was about."

Heather Baker adds her personal 
touch to the graffiti wall in a third 
floor suite. The wall was part of the 
suite's Central Park theme. 

Ask anyone on campus, and they'll probably tell you that the event Gerig Hall is best 
known for is its annual Christmas open house. Every year for the past six years, the 
Gerig men and women have entertained the Taylor community with bands, games, 
themes, coffee and costumes. This year's event was held on Nov. 30, and the second 
floor focused on traditional Christmas, the fourth floor looked at Christmas in the 
future and the third floor 
was the transition between 
the two with Christmas in 
New York and a New 
Year's Eve party. 

They even dropped a 
ball down all four floors 
and threw confetti and 
balloons at midnight to 
celebrate the month 
change from November to 
December, and two men 
played "Auld Lang Syne" 
on the trumpet and saxo-

surprise, surprise! 

Co-PAs Megan Bolim and 
Jen Platek have both lived 
on First East Olson for the 
past three years, and each 
wanted to say good-bye to 
the wing in a special way. 
"We wanted to do some- 
thing really special for 
them, and we thought it 
would be fun to keep it a 
surprise," Bohm explains. 

They chose May 5 for the 
special event and told their 
wingmates to keep the date 
open, then began making 
plans. Bohm and Platek 
contacted parents to ask for 
financial contributions and 
a special letter to each 
daughter. The parents' help 
made a big difference. 
Bohm says, "We had a 
great response, and we are so thankful to the parents for 
all their contributions and help in the whole thing." 

The week before May 5, Bohm and Platek posted clues 
about their plans. "Everyday they would hover over the 
door to see what the next clue was," Bohm says. "All they 
knew was to dress up and that we were going out for din- 
ner and to bring stuff to spend the night." The evening

began with the arrival of a photographer to take any pic- 
tures the women wanted. Then they traveled to the 
Holiday Inn in Anderson for dinner, a special program and 
the rest of the night. 

Freshman Brooke Stewart was very surprised. "It was a 
good time for us to get to know each other more, to have 
fun and get away from school," she says.

Borne away from nome 

Sometimes it's helpful to have a real home to visit 
when you are away at college. Chuck and Shirley 
Moore have been providing that home to the members 
of First West Olson for many years now. "The Moores 
act as our grandparents away from home. They're 
always there for us and encourage us along our journey 
here," freshman Susan Ankeny says. 

The Moores, missionaries in residence with OMS 
International, host Thanksgiving dinner and a 
Christmas party each fall, and Shirley makes Christmas 
ornaments for each person. They also sit with First 
West in chapel and make cookies during Finals Week, 
in addition to working with Students Concerned 
Radically About Missions (SCRAM) and Mu Kappa. 

The women on the wing really appreciate the 
Moores' involvement in their lives. PA Laura Bayes, 
junior, summed up the relationship this way: '"First 
West is the best, don't settle for less' has always been 
Chuck and Shirley's battle cry for our wing, but in 
reality we've been blessed with nothing less than the 
best from them."

Every year, hundreds of people show up to watch Taylathon. And every year, the women of 
Second East Olson go canoeing for a pick-a-date the next day. 

The four-year-old tradition is usually well attended, according to PA Carolyn Flick. "About 24 
people went this year," she estimates. "The attendance is always good." 

When canoeing with friends, sometimes staying in the canoe is the biggest challenge. "Within 
the first five minutes of being in the river, about every single canoe tipped — with the help of 
friends, of course." Flicks says. Getting dumped into the water can be a blessing, though, espe- 
cially in inclement weather. "We got rained on a couple times, but no one cared since everyone 
was wet anyways," Flick explains. "Being wet just made the picnic at the end kind of cold!"

called to serve 

Serving God and serving otiiers is an important 
part of Second Center Olson's fall wing retreat. 
Last year they sorted clothes at a mission in 
Grand Rapids, and this year they worked for 
Habitat for Humanity in the Detroit area. 

A director for Habitat explained to the women 
what the organization does. Then they split up 
into three groups to clean completed houses, with 
their own cleaning supplies. 

Because the groups coincided with carloads to 
the retreat, they each invented a name and a song 
— the Backstreet Blondes, the Scum Bums, and 
Dah-dit-dit-dit — dah-dah-dah — Dah-dit-dit-dit. 

PA Desi Stutzman thinks the small groups were 
important to the retreat's success. She says, "It 
was so great because we got to serve in small 
groups, learning more about each other as we 
worked, while helping their community."

them. Beat them, bust them, that's our 
custom, come on girls, let's readjust 

Second West's intramural football 
team is easy to recognize — the girls all 
wear black shorts, shirts, socks, cleats, 
hair bows and war paint. 

Many women were athletes in high 
school, so intramurals give them a 
chance to stay involved in sports. 
Freshman Jessica Bell says, "The main 
goal is to have fun and glorify God 
with it. It's fun to see if you can still 
hack it." 

This year's team ended up in the finals 
but lost to the off-campus team. 
According to junior Amy Frederick, 
2WO was "the No. 1 on-campus team."

Droiners anasisters 

Having brother and sister wings is one of those tradi- 
tions that is unique to Taylor. Some matches don't work 
Dut so well, but others seem perfect. Third East Olson and 
Second Center Wengatz is one of those great matches. 

The women of Third East think that God has a lot to do 
with this success. Laura Esclamado, Third East PA, says, 
■'At the very beginning, we put a lot of prayer into it." 

These wings do more than just pray and worship togeth- 
;r. They eat dinner together every Tuesday night. And in 
the fall, they traveled to an apple orchard in Ohio for a 
brother/sister wing retreat. Women of Third East pray for 
their brothers, too — each guy has an anonymous secret 
sister who encourages him regularly with notes. 

These girls have found more than a brother wing — 
they've found lasting friendships. Esclamado says, "A lot 
Df people have made really good friends."

Third Center Olson puts a different spin on the traditional Christmas > 
fonnal pick-a-date — they spend the night together. After dinner at 
the SAC Christmas banquet, participants attended the ballet, "The 
Nutcracker," then drove to PA Sara Secttor's house. At her house, 
they hung out and played games throughout the night and had break- 
fast the next morning before traveling back to campus. 

Spending so much time together means the women of 3C0 have to 
be careful about their choices for dates. Secttor says most girls 
choose guys they know well, or guys their friends know well. 

Secttor likes the activity becaus, "you get to know your date better 
than a nonnal pick-a-date." Sophomore Kelly Beitzel agreed, saying, 
"The next day you feel like you've made a good friend."

Formal pick-a-dates are nothing new for the women of Third West Olson, 
but this year they did do something different. Rather than holding it in the 
spring, as they have in years past, PAs Mandie CuUen and Lindsey 
VanderWoude decided to make the event a Christmas formal, planning it 
for Dec. 4, the night of the annual Christmas banquet at the DC. 

After eating at the DC, the group headed to Indianapolis to hear the 
Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra's Yuletide Festival. Then they moved on 
to junior Christina Hart's home in Indianapolis for dessert and a white ele- 
phant gift exchange. 

Because one wing member's father donated the tickets, the entire evening 
was very inexpensive, and Cullen thinks this contributed to the event's 
success. "A large number of girls went, and it was a huge hit because we 
were able to keep the price around $12 per couple," Cullen says.

lori holtmann 
director of housing 



new house, new job, new husband 

The first month of the school year was filled with new 
experiences for Lori Holtmarm, formerly Bedi. And the dia- 
mond ring on her left ring finger didn't have everything to 
do with it. The changing of her last name was accompanied 
by a new position at Taylor 

Married on September 11, 1999, Lori Holtmann is the 
new director of residential housing. After her wedding, 
which was officiated by Richard Allen Farmer, dean of the 
chapel, the couple set up house in Upland. 

Lori's husband, Chris, is also a new Taylor employee. He 
was hired as the assistant men's basketball coach. About all 
of these changes, Lori says, "There were times when it was 
very, very hectic. Any one of those things is a big, stressful 
thing. So to do them all at the same time was a little ambi- 
tious, but we made it." 

That's likely because Lori is a very ambitious woman. A 
blue-eyed brunette, Lori is a Gordon College graduate who 
left with a history major and Bible minor. She then got her 
Masters in student personnel administration from Ball 

Beginning her professional stay at Taylor in 1995, Lori 
started here as the Gerig hall director. And after four years 
in that position, she moved into the director of residential 
housing position this fall. 

However, Lori's experiences in student development did- 
n't just begin when she started working for Taylor. "I was 
very involved in student development even through 

So after working closely with college students her first 

four years of post-graduate work, Lori does not desire to 
lose touch with student life at Taylor now. She says that 
students are her favorite part of both jobs, but she desires 
more interaction than possible in her new position. Lori 
adds, "The thing I miss the most about being here in this 
office is just the flow of students in and out of my apart- 
ment. I just loved it — constant activity, constant people." 

But that's still obvious in Lori's office demeanor. She's 
often seen fluttering around the office, talking to employees 
and students alike. After the photo shoot, she stops to dis- 
cuss housing with one of the editors. Outside the office, 
you may see her meet with Chris downstairs in Rediger or 
sitting amongst students in chapel. She smiles. 

Continuing in a different role on the same campus, Lori 
is excited to learn her job expectations. She also enjoys her 
closer interaction with Walt Campbell and the entire associ- 
ate dean staff. 

Lori believes that this position will help her grow. She 
says, "I am a pleaser. I want to bend over backwards to 
make evei7one happy, but I can't. I think it will thicken my 
skin, and I think that's important. It will mature me, and I 
think it will help me in the future with being more 

With that, Lori's not sure where she'll be in ten years. "I 
see myself either moving on professionally or being a 
mother. I say that as if they're mutually exclusive, and 1 
don't know if they are or not. But I know that if I do have a 
family, I will be committed to that; and if I have my career, 
I will be committed to that."

an imporlant symbol 

Taylor trivia: if you were kidnapped and your ransom was a shovel, where would you 
live? Answer: Foundation. 

The shovel has been Foundation's traditional symbol for about ten years now. According 
to PA Andy Jacques, the floor first acquired the shovel when several floor members were 
driving to a retreat and noticed an old shovel lying on the side of the road. They picked it 
up and cleaned it off, and the shovel has been the floor mascot ever since. It has even been 
incoi"porated into the floor logo. 

The shovel accompanies the tloor to retreats and intramural games. But because people 
have tried to steal it, it "stays in hiding most of the time," Jacques says. 

Two years ago. Foundation's sister wing. Second Center Olson, tried a different tactic to 
gain possession. The women lured a couple of Foundation floor members outside and kid- 
napped them, taking the men to The Bank and locking them in the vault. When they 
demanded the shovel in exchange for the men's release, Jacques says, the floormates told 
them, "You can keep the guys." 

The shovel is important to these men. Jacques says, "It's kind of a rallying point for the

Most intramural basketball teams play to win, 
but there's at least one team on the court whose 
goal is to lose, and have fun doing it. Sammy II's 
Lounge Lizards dress up in outrageous clothes 
and try not to win. Usually their costumes have a 
common theme, such as dresses or superheros. 

First Bergwall team member Dave Kauffman

Anyone on campus will agree there's something dif- 
ferent about the Brotherhood. The floor has three lead- 
ers — the Snake, the Pope and the Phubbbbbs — but 
no one off the floor knows exactly how they're chosen 
or when and how these traditions started. 

And to add to the mystery, the members of BroHo 
won't tell. Given the number of people that have come 
through Taylor as members of the Brotherhood, this is 
a pretty amazing feat. 

As the newest Phubbbbbs, the five-b Phubbbbbs, 
freshman Nate Elwell, holds more power than the pre- 
vious Phubbbbs, who graduated last spring. The cur- 
rent Pope, Jeff Blosser, has less power than the

By Brenda Vergara 

Samuel Moiris, or 
Prince Kaboo as his 
tribe knew him, was 
sold into slavery at 
the age of 11 . He was constantly beaten by his 
owner, and as time went by, the beatings got 
worse. The abuse was eventually so temble 
that he could no longer take the pain. His only 
solution was to escape, and that is exactly what 
he did. 

When Sammy reached the coast, he began 
working on a coffee plantation, where he 
learned about Christ from another worker, a 
young boy. 

A lady missionary from the church he was 
attending began teaching Sammy how to read 
and write, 
and about the 
Gospel. She 
also gave him 
the name 
Moms. As 

a great 


soon as he learned the opportunities that were 
available to him in America, he began asking 
God to show him how to get there. He arrived 
in New York not long after. 

In New York, Sammy met Stephen Merritt, 
pastor of a Methodist church. Merritt suggested 
that Sammy be sent to study at Taylor 
University, in Fort Wayne, Ind. Despite his bro- 
ken English and faulty accent, Sammy touched 
the hearts of Taylor's campus right away. 

Thaddeus Reade, Taylor's president at the 
time, saw immediately why Sammy was so 
special. He hoped that Samuel Morris would be 
a blessing to both the school and its students, 
and that is exactly what he was. 

January 1893, two years after having arrived 
at Taylor, Sammy's body was still unaccus- 
tomed to the cold weather. He developed pneu- 
monia and died at St. Joseph's Hospital, in Fort 
Wayne, May 1893. 

His unquestioning faith and "Spirit-filled" 
life had a great impact on Taylor University 
and continues as a legacy today.

Foman tradition 

Freshmen hazing is illegal at Taylor — but toga initiation isn't. The 
Friday before the tlrst home game of the year. Penthouse upperclass- 
men make their floor's freshmen wear togas all day. The next day, the 
entire floor dons togas as well, to put on a show before the football 
players arrive on the field. 

Freshman Matt Darr enjoyed the entire experience. "I was pretty 
excited," he says. "It's an excuse to be dumb for a day and have fun 
doing it." Darr is only one recent participant in a long line of 
Penthouse men. The toga football tradition dates back as far as the 

Penthouse PA Steve Klipp believes the event will continue in the 
future, too. He says, "It's an old Morris tradition that's going to last 
throush the new Morris era."

In November 1995, Swallow Robin Hall hosted its first 
Birdhouse Bash, an event that has since become an annual tra- 
dition. Each floor picks a theme that's carried out in every 
room, and on occasion, there's an overall theme for the entire 
hall. This year's theme for the tlrst floor was the holidays, 
while the second floor focused on entertainment. The third 
floor highlighted New York. 

First Floor PA Laura Sergi says the best thing about the 
event is that "it really opens us up to the rest of campus." 
Second Floor PA Jason Hillier agrees. "It brings in so many 
people," he says. "And each room has an individual theme, so 
it's very unique."

Placing in Airband is a three-year tradition for First East Wengatz. This year they took 
home third place for their rendition of "Madame Librarian," from the musical The 
Music Man. "Men In Tights" from Robin Hood and "It's a Hard Knock Life" from 
Annie earned them first place in 1997 and 1998, respectively. Senior Josh Eastburn, 
who participated in 1997 and 1998, says, "The best thing about Airband was wearing a 
dress or tights and being with your closest friends and not being ashamed of it." 

Are the guys disappointed about losing first place this year? "It's always a thrill to 
perfonn in front of our peers, and winning is nice, too, ' sophomore Brian Peters says.

the SDice ofliie ^^ 


Ask anyone on campus about their wing or floor, and most will com- 
nent on both the diversity and the unity. First West Wengatz is one that 
las concrete examples to prove it. 

According to PA Justin Belgiano, a visitor can hear anything from the 
..ion King soundtrack to Ice Cube being blasted into the hallway. There 
ire men Belgiano calls "marquee scholars" and those he calls "video 
;ame fiends." Senior Matt Mendham has the suspected largest book 
ibrary, while freshman Nate Zacharias has a large collection of DVDs. 
Vnd on any given morning, it is not unusual for the men to meet over the 
)athroom sinks early in the morning, some just waking up and others just 
;oing to bed. Freshman Drew Shafer usually goes to bed between 4 and 5 

a.m., mostly "because I procrastinate on my homework by hanging out 
with people and don't start it until really late," he explains. Freshman 
Aaron Brown, on the other hand, is usually up pretty early. "I like to 
spend my time in the morning being up and reading my Bible and pray- 
ing," he says. 
And yet, despite all these differences, there's a lot that brings the men of 
First West together. "We have very high involvement. The unity is very 
strong," Belgiano says. "It sounds kind of cliche, but I like how there's a 
lot of different groups of guys," Brown adds. Shafer agrees. "It all comes 
down to the guys," he says. "It's just a great group of guys. There's a lot 
of brotherly interaction."

milk, it does a body good? ^^ 

For most people, the thought of drinking a gallon of milk in 
one hour is pretty sickening. But for the men of Second East 
Wengatz, it's all part of their annual Dairy Challenge, held the 
Sunday before spring finals week. 

The purpose of the event is to drink the entire gallon without 
getting sick. Ten men participated this year, but only one of 
them was able to coinplete the challenge — David Miller. "I 
think that it is a pride thing to be able to actually do the chal- 
lenge without throwing up," PA Mike Paull explains. 

Sophomore Tim Knipp was one of the winning contestants 
last year. He was denied medical attention at the health center 
because he informed the nurse that he had won the dairy chal- 
lenge. Paull recounts, "She responded by saying that he need- 
ed to 'go back to your room and think about what you did!'" 

Paull really enjoys the tradition. "It challenges guys in an 
interesting way and brings everyone together for one last she- 
bang before the year is over," he says.

Freshman David Miller shows off his empty jug with pride. 
Miller was the only Second East wing member to consume an 
entire gallon of milk in an hour in the 2000 Dairy Challenge. 


The Dairy Challenge is too much 
for freshman Steven Nothum's 
stomach. Many participants get 
sick enough to throw up.

As the first weekend of March approached, the 
men of Second Center Wengatz drew a 10 to 14 
hour radius around Upland on a map. They then 
placed the names of several cities in that radius in a 
hat, pulled one out, loaded themselves into two 
Taylor vans and took off Thus began the second 
annual Second Center road trip. PA Stuart Davis 
says, "We wanted to do something fun and 

This year's drive took the men to Panama City, 
Fla., out of choices such as Toronto, New York 

City, Boston, Atlanta and New Orleans. The drive 
took 14 hours each way, and the wingmates spent 
only 10 hours at the beach. Last year they traveled 
to Charleston, S.C. 

Spending all that time crammed into a small space 
might be frustrating for some, but these men con- 
sider it a bonding experience. "Definitely the best 
thing is the way you get to know people after being 
crammed in a bus for twelve hours." Davis added, 
"You see different sides of people that you don't get 
a chance to see very often."

They saunter into chapel wearing sunglasses and leather jackets, looking 
tough and somewhat out of place at Taylor. But any Taylor veteran knows this 
is just Second West "Wengatz "s way of advertising for its upcoming open house. 
Tonight We Ride. 

Tonight We Ride began seven years ago as a celebration of Harley Davidson. 
"Leather jackets and motorcycles seem to represent a certain American attitude 
that guys enjoy," PA Dan Jacobson explains. The event attracts many familiar 
faces from Taylor's community, including Walt Campbell in past years and DC 
worker Paula this year. 

Jerry Palmer, of Fort Wayne, collects leather jackets and boots as a hobby and 
lends them out to 2WW every year. Palmer's company, J. P. Audio, supplies and 
mans lighting and sound equipment for events throughout Indiana, including 
several large Taylor concerts. i 

Open house visitors can listen to music, watch I 

movies, and enjoy food and non-alcoholic drinks from i 
a bar set up in the lounge. "People come to see the 
guys, laugh at their friends trying to be tough and to 
throw on a jacket and have their pictures taken," 
Jacobson says. "Overall, it's just a celebration of 
Harley Davidson, the people who ride them, the 
clothes that those people wear, and the image that the 
whole thing carries with it."

take me out To tneball game ^^ 

Walking by the Wengatz lawn on a Sunday night, you might hear 
cheers and singing. And you might see 14 men running around bare- 
foot. You might even ask, "What is happening here?" What you are 
witnessing is Third East's "Big Red Bat" tradition. 

One day during his freshman year, sophomore Jamie Ostrander was 
reminiscing about his childhood love for plastic bats and whiffle 
balls. So he and his roommate. Davis Evans, went out to buy them. 
Ostrander says, "It seemed like it would be a good wing tradition." 

Thus, "Big Red Bat" began. The guys get together on warm 
Sunday evenings between 9 and 10 p.m. to play a barefoot game of 
whiffle ball, with pizza boxes serving as bases. "We always sing the 
"National Anthem" before we start — that's another tradition," 
Ostrander says. Between the 3rd and 4th innings, the members of 
Third East stop for a stretch and sing "Take Me Out to the Ball 
Game," usually led by a fellow wing member who is up on the wing, 
sticking his head out of a window. 

"Big Red Bat" is just one of many crazy wing traditions around 
campus. Ostrander says, "It's a fian way to relieve the tension of the 
beginning of the week. ..we highly recommend it."

For most people, the word "outhouse" brings to 
mind an unsturdy wooden shack, a foul odor and 
plumbing that consists of nothing more than a hole 
in the ground. But to the men of Third Center 
Wengatz, the outhouse represents their Taylor home. 

People began calling Third Center the outhouse at 
least tlve years ago, according to PA Greg Hall. The 
tradition started "solely based on the fact that Third 
Center does not have a bathroom," Hall says. Men 
from other wings jokingly theorized that the utility 
closet on the wing was really an outhouse, and the 
name stuck. 

Hall chose to incorporate the name into his wing 
theme and decorations. The name tags on each door 
have a photograph of a different outhouse, and the 
men constructed a large cardboard outhouse to dec- 
orate for the Wengatz Hall Christmas open house. 
Also, the backs of the wing shirts contain a floor 
plan with a hole to indicate the outhouse. 

These wing decorations were created based on the 
wing verse from Ephesians 4, "representing the fact 
that we're all different, but we're all outhouses. 
We're all made in God's image, " Hall explains.

On Sunday morning, October 17, PA Jason Courter laid face 
down on the pavement in the Hartford City Square. His friends 
duct-taped him to the ground, and he waited. Back at Taylor, in 
the Wengatz Hall lounge, his date received a clue that said, 
"Kids pick on me, now the pavement is all 1 see." She and 27 
other women were driven to the Hartford City Square and told to 
find their dates. Thus began Third West Wengatz's Octoberfest 

Octoberfest is a long-standing tradition on Third West, one 
Courter estimates to be at least 1 5 years old. After all the women 
discovered their dates' identities, the entire group drove to 
Andrew Fennig's farm. The rest of the day consisted of a pump- 
kin carving contest, hayrides, a maze in the bam made of bales 
of straw and a cookout complete with a keg of root beer. "The 
cleaning ladies saw it on our wing and thought it was real beer. 
Someone told our hall director, and he just laughed," Courter 
recounts. In a different activity from previous years, the men of 
Third West also taught their dates to fire shotguns by lining up 
the carved pumpkins once the contest was over. Each of the 
attendees received a t-shirt to commemorate the occasion. 

Octoberfest once again drew a large number of participants. 
"All the guys on the wing make an effort to come," Courter 
explains. "It's something that everyone looks forward to."

on my own 

I've planned since my freshman year to live off-campus my 
senior year. Back then it seemed so adult to me — signing a 
lease, buying groceries, paying bills. It still seems pretty adult to 
me, and in many ways it's very different from dorm life. I loved 
dorm life, by the way. The strange thing is, I like paying bills. I 
don't like spending the money, but I like the feeling of indepen- 
dence when I write those checks each month. I like buying gro- 
ceries and learning how to cook. I like not thinking about open 
house hours. I love entertaining. In a few months, I'm going to 
be living on my own in an apartment in the Chicago area, hun- 
dreds of miles from my family and the only house I've ever lived 
in. Somehow, I think this living off-campus is the perfect

richard alien farmer 
dean of the chapel 

'carpe farmer!' 

a dazzling beginning 

"Look up at me and receive the benediction," is one 
Richard Allen Farmer, dean of the chapel, phrase that 
most students will never forget. 

But here's a new one to remember: "I am a lover of 
Christ who is a fun guy!" 

A man who calls flying his own plane from Dallas, 
Texas to Santa Barbara, Cal., over the mountains and 
deserts of New Mexico and Arizona, "especially exhil- 
arating," Farmer says, "I wouldn't call myself a thrill 
seeker, but I do want to live life fiiUy." Having earned 
his pilots' license in 1989 and his instrument rating a 
couple of years later, there's a lot to Farmer that students 
would never imagine. His polished speech and manner 
not only disguise his New York City ghetto roots, but 
also his love of the exotic. 

Aside from flying planes. Farmer is a certfied scuba 
diver and used to ride a motorcycle, but Farmer also has 
owned animals that are usually found only in zoos. He 
says, "Aminals have always fascinated ne and primates, 
in particular, seemed to be the frontrunners. I bought, 
over time, six monkeys and a chimpanzee simply 
because I could and wanted the joy of raising them." He 
has also owned a ferret and a colony of 26 hamsters. 

But what is most important to Farmer comes out in 
his sermons - his music, his ministry and his family. He 
often speaks of wife, Rosemary, and son, Timothy. 
Farmer met Rosemary in .San Diego, Calif, in July of 
1980. He says, "I was the guest preacher at her home 
church that weedend, and her pastor - who is her uncle 
- thought she and I should meet. We liked each other 
immediately. After nearly a year of dating, we were 
married at the St. Stephen's Church of God in Christ in 
San Diego, by the same uncle who saw to it that we 

Since then, the couply adopted their son when he 
was three weeks old. About Timothy's entrance into the 
Farmer family. Farmer says, "We had problems con- 
ceiving naturally and decided to choose one of the many 

children 'out there' who needed a loving family. We 
were made aware of Timothy's birth and chose him. We 
use the term 'chosen child' rather that 'adopted' and 
sense that God used us to spare Timothy from a life that 
might have been very difficult." 

fri turn, the woman who Fanner attributes to guiding 
his life is his mother. Now 69 and still living in New 
York City, Farmer's mother is described by Farmer as 
"one of the most generative, energetic people I know. I 
greatly admire her. She made our growing up lots of 
fun. She was affectionate, detemiined and industrious." 

Fanner's mother also saw to it that he took piano 
lessons beginning at age 11. He says, "Duke Ellington 
titled his autobiography "Music is My Mistress." I 
understand that. Music has been a love of mine since I 
was a child. Having the privilege of private lessons 
placed me in another world." And his musical interest 
is still strong today. 

Having eamed his Bachelor of Music degree in 1 975 
for piano and voice. Fanner has combined that musical 
love with his Master of Divinity degi-ee and his love for 
the Lord to create RAF (Richard Allen Fanner) 
Ministries, "a church renewal ministry that uses expos- 
itory preaching and music to stimulate the worldwide 
body of followers of Jesus Christ, one gi'oup at time," 
which he employs on Taylor's campus, as well as across 
the country. 

"My call to ministry was clear, though non-di'amat- 
ic. I was keenly aware that God had given me two vis- 
ible gifts. I could clearly communicate truth verbally 
and musically. I knew from my early teen years that 
these vehicles of preaching and music would be the 
ones God would use." Such has mng true, as Fanner is 
as well-known for his leading chapel attendees in a 
hymn, or ending a sermon with a song, as he is for his 
open-eyed benedictions, during which he "look[s] into 
the eyes of the faithful and send[s] them out."

a new cross cultural experience, 
now open to taylor students of all 
majors, provides an opportunity for 


in ire 


When you think of Ireland, what comes to 
mind? Of course, the beautiful countryside, 
castles and kissing the Blarney Stone, but 
what about a population that is less than 
one percent Christian? During the summer 
of 1998, Vance Maloney, associate profes- 
sor of psychology, along with nine Taylor 
students, recognized the spiritual depravity 
of Ireland and spent a month in Dublin on a 
mission trip. The students earned four hours 
of cross cultural credit doing survey 
research by asking the Irish, "Where does 
hope come from?" The answers provided 
open doors to witnessing opportunities for 
the Taylor students. 

"It is so important to get a different look at 

by Nicole Schulz 


the world, away from a North American 
viewpoint," Maloney commented. "Ireland is 
a great place to experience a new culaire and 
get involved in ministry." 

With Ireland being so economically stable, 
it is rarely thought of as needing any help. 
With Maloney's help. Taylor now realizes 
the country's spiritual need, and thus devel- 
oped year-round programs which provide 
credit for students of any major. According to 
Maloney, spending a January term or a 
semester in Ireland is not only a great chance 
to experience an amazing culture, but also a 
prime opportunity to minister to an Irish pop- 
ulation in need of finding hope in life through 
Jesus Christ. 

Ireland is a great 

place to experience a 

new culture and get 

involved in ministry.

— Josh McMullen 

"Retreats are a unique plus to being in the 
Christian education program here at Taylor. We 
get to know brothers and sisters, who otherwise 
may have just been faces in a classroom. I think 
the retreats serve to provide a more connected, 
personal feel to the Christian education pro- 
gram and also serve to excite vision to under- 
classmen and encouragement to upperclassmen 
as we all join together in a more informal, 
intentional atmosphere." 

— Lora Erickson 

The retreat has been one of the highlights of 
my time at Taylor, getting away from campus 
and being with some fun, godly people. Faye 
and Dr. Lay have poured themselves into it ... 
it is a real testimony of how much they care 
and how dedicated they are." 

— Jayson Palm 

"I love Christian education retreats and the 
Christian education program in general 
because the ultimate end of man (to glorify 
God) is always set before us, and the means 
to do so — drawing into a deeper relationship 
with Him — is cultivated by an environment 
of 'connecting,' late night burrito runs, prayer 
and praises, rice pilaf, being poured into by 
Faye, Dr. Lay, and Phil and Matt Barcalow's 
favorite thing ... square dancing."

The hardest part of 
student teaching 

for me was coming 

back and being a 

college kid again. 

— Kyle Romine 

Students getting real life experience 
in the local school systems are 

Student teaching could be regarded as a sort of mission impossible 
assignment. Each year a few daring seniors venture into the great wide 
world of student teaching. Leaving the Taylor bubble behind, they 
boldly go into the land of spit wads, note passing and bladder impaired 
children. They enter the public school system with one goal: to inspire 
young minds with knowledge. Some have the experience of a lifetime, 
others leave wondering why they ever thought they were mature in 
junior high. 

Kyle Romine is one of Taylor's intrepid adventurers. This fall, Kyle 
student taught in Huntington. He taught three musical education class- 
es and a sixth grade choir in the junior high, as well as a concert and a 
show choir in the high school. Kyle admitted that, at first, he was ner- 
vous student teaching. But by the end of the third week, he loved it. 
Kyle developed a wonderful relationship with his students, especially 
the high schoolers. He helped with many of the extra rehearsals for the 
show choir and was able to get to know the students on a one-on-one 
basis. Kyle shared, "High schoolers these days aren't as bad as you 
think they are. The 'problem kids' are the ones I was closest to after I 
broke through to them." 

Through his teaching experience, Kyle learned to be more creative 
in the classroom and developed patience. He also found himself apply- 
ing ideas and things he learned in school that he never thought he 
would use. Kyle has followed up with his students. The show choir is 
perfonning in Disney World this summer, and Kyle hopes to be able to 
go see them. Kyle said, "The hardest part of student teaching for me 
was coming back and being a college kid again."

(below) Junior Tim Walter and freshmen 
Joshua Benteman and James 
Immordino attempt to figure out the 
math question of the week posted over 
a drinking fountain in Nussbaum. 

Some may balk at the idea of voluntarily spending extra 
out-of-class time to solve complicated math equations. 
But that is exactly what Matthew DeLong, associate pro- 
fessor of mathematics, hopes students will do. If you are 
a regular in Nussbaum, or even if you've accidentally 
wandered through it before, you may have noticed the 
math Problem of the Week posted on the walls or bulletin 
boards of the building. DeLong finds the problems in 
books, on the Internet, or sometimes makes them up in 
order to challenge students and to "remind people that 
math can be fun," he said. "Sometimes they forget that in 
the classroom." 

If math isn't your thing, then trying to solve the 
Problem of the Week could seem like a daunting task. But 
DeLong said that, though some of the questions were 
geared toward those who are majoring in a math-related 
field, others are simply a matter of using basic counting 
and logic skills. He tries to maintain a balance by making 
them about half-and-half 

And, of course, no one would ask for extra work with- 
out providing incentives. Each week, the correct answers 
that were turned in are collected, and one winner was 
drawn from the pool to receive a free Ivanhoes' shake. 
Some teachers also gave extra credit to their students who 
correctly answer the Problem of the Week. Juniors Shawn 
Alspaugh and David Aukemian have correctly answered 
1 1 of the 13 problems — more than anyone else. 

DeLong hopes to do the same thing again next year, so 
if you missed it this year, there is still time to brush up on 
your multiplication tables and review the quadratic for- 
mula. Who knows? Maybe that free shake could be

Many students don't know about all of the research that 
is happening in the physics department. Here is the 

• HEN A (High Energy Neutral Atom imager): HENA is currently 
the highest priority project and is in the late stages of design. HENA 
will fly on the IMAGE (Imager from Magnetopause to Aurora 
Global Exploration) Satellite and will image the neutral atoms that 
are produced by ring currents. 

• DROPPS (The Distribution and Role of Particles in the Polar 
Summer mesosphere using Coordinated Rocket, Radar and Lidar 
Techniques): DROPPS consists of two rockets that will be launched 
in Norway toward one noctilucent cloud and one polar mesospheric 
summer echo. The research department is under contract to build a 
particle charge/mass spectrometer that will be mounted in the nose 
cone of the rocket. 

• SEPS (Source/Loss-Cone Energetic Particle Spectrometer): The 
SEPS instrument is located on the POLAR satellite despun platfomi 
along with the auroral imagers, and is independent of the other CEP- 
PAD sensors. SEPS consists of two independent telescopes that 
measure both the energetic electron, and ion fluxes in the vicinity of 
the magnetic field-aligned loss, and source cone regions with high 
sensitivity, and with fine angular and time resolution. 

• SPADUS (Space Dust and Energetic Particle Experiment): In the 
near-Earth space, both orbital debris and natural (cosmic) particles 
contribute to the particulate environment (Tuzzolino et al., 1992). 

The present-day lack of quantitative measurements of the tlux, 
velocity/trajectory and time characteristics of small debris particles 
continues to hamper the development of reliable evolutionary mod- 
eling of orbital debris, and the need for these data remains as an 
important goal in this field. The SPAce DUSt (SPADUS) experiment 
addresses this need, providing important information on: a) the 
orbital characteristics and possible sources of near-Earth cosmic 
dust and b) the mass distribution of meteor-stream particles that may 
be encountered. 

• VLF (Very Low Frequency Receiver): The VLF (Very Low 
Frequency) Station at Taylor detects VLF radio waves emitted by 
lightning. These waves are of low enough frequency that they are in 
the audio range. This is why we can easily, translate them into 
sound. When lightning flashes, it puts out these VLF waves which 
can do two things. They can retlect back and forth between the 
ground and the E-Layer of the Ionosphere. These are called sferics 
and are veiy common. The second thing it can do is get caught in a 
"duct" along a magnetic field line and travel several earth radii out 
into space before returning to earth on the opposite hemisphere 
(geomagnetically speaking). These trapped waves are called 
whistlers because, when received, they output a whistling sound, 
starting at a high tone and dropping to a low tone over the time 
index of about a second. 

• TU Solar Car Racing Team: A student lead attempt to built a vehi- 
cle powered by converting the sun radiation to electricity that will 
be able to race cross-country in Sunrayce '99.

his tidy desk. Books line the left side of his office and 
his computer whirs silently as he begins the story of the 
past two years. All of a sudden Dr. Charles is not the

Last semester I had Dr. J. Daryl Charles for 
Contemporary Issues, and it was well known in the buzz 
of classroom rumors that there was a reason he was 
occasionally missing classes: the reason was his family, 
and especially an unnamed daughter, off on the East 

We now know her as Melody, a radiant, godly, 
bio/pre-med freshman who says, "God is faithful," when 
asked about her story. 

It began two-and-a-half years ago when Taylor 
University, Upland, expressed interest in employing Dr. 
Charles as a philosophy professor. When Melody sensed 
that there was change on the horizon, she threw a "pre- 
emptive strike," as Dr. Charles called it, and asked her 
parents to "promise me that I can finish high school" at 
Mt. Hebron High School in EUicott City, a suburb of 
Baltimore, Md. 

Dr. and Mrs. Charles decided to take Melody's 
request very seriously. Considering the needs of their 
two sons, Ian and Jesse, they decided to accept the job 

on a trial basis. For the fall semester of 1997, Dr. 
Charles was flying between Upland, where he rented an 
apartment, to Maryland every other weekend. Spring 
break and summers helped the Charleses to catch their 
breath and treasure every moment when the family 
could be together. 

The Charles' church in Ellicott City was very impor- 
tant during the two years that Dr. Charles decided to 
commute. Dr. Charles says that they could not have

And even though both Melody and her father are 
"thrilled about the choice" to keep her in the school 
where she began to excel academically, socially and 
spiritually, the Charleses realize that the situation is not 
ideal for every family. But Dr. Charles notes, "This is 
what God asked of us... [He] gives grace," for the situa- 
tion that is not normative. I smile to think that when 
Dr. Charles gets up from behind his desk tonight and

Mark Lora contemplates the best response to an 
ethical scenario at the Ethics Bowl meet that took 
place in Indianapolis at the end of October.

How do you compete against other teams 
based on ethics? Six students learned exactly 
how that can be done this year, as members of 
Taylor's second Ethics Bowl team. 

The team consisted of seniors Mark Lora, 
Lori Nye, Erin Pickett and Matt Rohrs. Juniors 
Seth Corduan and Dan Bubar alternated for the 
two bowls. The first competition was held at 
the end of October in Indianapolis, and the 
team placed third. The second took place in 
Washington, D.C., where, according to Pickett, 
the team finished "in the middle of the pack." 

Taylor's involvement in the Ethics Bowl 
started last year, when Wally Roth, professor of 
computing and systems science, asked students 
in his computer science ethics class to be mem- 
bers of the team. This year, however, the invi- 
tation was extended to all majors. The team 
was represented by majors including computer 
science, business systems, political science and 

So, what exactly is an ethics bowl? Pickett 
said, "It's kinda hard to explain if you've never 
seen it. It's like a debate, but with ethical 
issues." Unlike a debate, however, there is not 
always an adversary. She said, "We were given 
a question and then had full reign on what we 
wanted to say. We had to be able to explain 
why we thought the way we did. After that, we 
were scored on how well we were able to

work together dur-

they had to answer 
a question. Pickett 
says, "[During that 
time] we would 
encourage the per- 
son who was going 
to speak. We could 
pass notes." 


A few months before each of the matches, the 
team was given a list of ethical scenarios. The 
members divided them up and researched the 
answers. Then they got together to discuss the 
answers and, as Pickett said, "hone them 
down." At the actual Ethics Bowl, some of the 
quesfions were asked, but not all of them. 

The questions ranged greatly in subjects dis- 
cussed. One scenario asked whether, after an 
abortion protester makes one comment to 
someone entering an abortion clinic, if the per- 
son asks to be left alone, the First Amendment 
requires the protester to stay at least 1 5 feet 
away. Pickett said that the team did "really 
well on this one." The team answered that it 
was constitutional because the First 
Amendment protects both parties. Also, the 
Taylor participants pointed out that the protest- 
er would still be able to carry on a conversation 
with the person, since 15 feet is not a great 

Through the Ethics Bowl, the students 
were challenged to look more deeply at what 
they believed. Though they had time to pre- 
pare their answers, the team members still 
had to think quickly. Pickett said, "We actu- 
ally knew what the competition would be, 
but we would still write out our main points 
together. '

With all of the normal academic pressures in 
additiooito busy sqbedules, study tables provide 

Tor atTTreTes 

The life of a college student is busy. Period. Juggling a schedule filled 
with tests, committee meetings, papers, coffee dates and wing activities is 
enough to leave any co-ed exhausted. But for student athletes, even more 
variables are thrown into the mix. The demands of practices, training and 
games, in addition to the activities of normal college life, can make it diffi- 
cult to achieve a comfortable balance. But the student-athlete study table is 
helping Taylor's athletes do just that. 

In its second year of existence, the study table program requires fresh- 
men and transfer students to spend a minimum often hours in the library 
each week of their first semester at Taylor. For many athletes, the program 
simply holds them accountable to their academics. When senior basketball 
player Nick David transferred to Taylor from lUPUI last year, he found the 
program allowed him to "get out of the dorm and have a quiet place to 
study. " 

The study table program also requires each participant to meet with his 
or her professor at two points throughout the semester. Meetings such as 
these were vital components of Amber McClure's experience with the pro- 
gram. As a member of the volleyball team, McClure missed 80 percent of 
her Friday classes to travel to games during her freshman year. But these 
required meetings helped foster relationships between McClure and her 
professors. "It was good to get to know [my professors]," she explains, "so 
they could start to understand me in order to help me understand their 

Barb Davenport, director of learning services and student/athletic 
Academic Support, who helped design the study table layout, hopes the 
effects of the program will extend beyond the one-semester requirement. 
"We believe that if you start out with good study habits, they'll carry 
through for you," she asserts. 

Davenport's goal for the program is exemplified in sophomore Andy 
Flanigan's experience with the football study table. "The traits I've picked 
up from the program will definitely stick with me throughout the rest of 
my college career," he remarks. 

But Davenport believes that the greatest aspect of the study table pro- 
gram is that it conveys Taylor's responsibility to its athletes. It demon- 
strates, she asserts, that "Taylor's not just using [its athletes] for sports 
scores and winning, but to help them do well and graduate," once again 
proving Taylor's commitment to excellence.

good working environment 

Senior Kim Smitli shares a laugh with a fellow student in the library computer area. The 
library is often regarded as an extremely social atmosphere. 

How Y2K affected Taylor 

• January term was pushed back for one week as a precautionary measure, so 
students had an extra week of Christmas break. Thus graduation was held a 
week later than usual. 

• Lighthouse trips were scheduled for destinations within the United States, 
rather than the usual trips oversees. 

• Information Services spent $60,000 replacing and updating computers. 

• IS prepped its department for all kinds of situations, so that it would be ready 
if something happened. 

• IS finished the effort by powering-down all of the campus' computers. Art 
Mahan, associate vice president for information resources, said, "Taylor was 
no longer visible from the Internet." 

• The biggest result was that a handfial of computers had problems with disci- 
plined, unique software, which Mahan said was simply because the programs 
were used by small amounts of people and were unknown to IS. 

How Y2K affected the world 

• People stockpiled canned goods and bottled water. Widespread panic ensued 
in the weeks leading up to the big day. 

• Millions were glued to the television as the apple dropped in New York City. 

• The effects were very small compared to those that were expected. There 
were only a few problems associated with Y2K.

bible professor 

living through 

more than meets the eye 

Bam! Bam! Bam! Professor Ron Collymore's thick fist meets the 
wooden desktop in three rapid successions. The sound echos through 
the desk's metal base and resonates throughout the classroom. 

"What's that brother's name in the back?" CoUymore asks. Timidly, 
a blonde-headed freshman looks up and quietly ventures, "Me?" 

"Yeah you! What's your name," Collymore demands. 

"Uh, it's Jon, sir" 

"Jon, eh? Where you from?" 

Now with slightly more courage, Jon replies, "Kansas." 

"Kansas! Jon from Kansas! What's your major, Jon?" 

"Computer science." 

"Computer science! So you're not a people person are you? You're 
one of those computer people!" 

Jon nods, half smiling, unsure how to respond to Collymore's barrage 
of questions. 

Still unsatisfied with Jon's reaction, Collymore probes further. "You 
got a girlfriend, Jon?" 

"Well, uh, no I guess." 

"You want one?" Collymore asks, grinning. 

Emphatically shaking his head, Jon answers silently. 

"Jon from Kansas," Collymore muses, " ... interesting." 

Jon wasn't the only student to get the third degree. Most of 
Collymore's students have been asked the same four questions: name, 
hometown, major and dating status. Although Jon didn't find the ordeal 
funny, in his own way, Collymore was showing he cared enough to ask. 
At the very least, he had a good way to get the class' attention. 

Fall semester's old testament survey classes didn't have the opportu- 
nity to experience Collymore's unique classroom personality, however 
The professor was admitted to Ball Memorial Hospital in early 
September due to several serious medical problems. After multiple 
surgeries and weeks in intensive care, Collymore returned home. 
Though he returned to teaching in the spring, he is still recovering. 

Describing this year as the most challenging of his life, Collymore 
said his experience taught him, "God doesn't forsake us... ." After 
undergoing a temporary collastamy to manage a perforated colon, and 
brain surgery due to a malfunctioning shunt, he has much to be thank- 
ful for. Aside from emotional and physical scars Collymore was left 
with, including near blindness, the professor said that he believes the 

"scariest thing, but yet the biggest blessing" is that he doesn't remem- 
ber the majority of the ordeal. "God's been good to me. That's what I 
remember," he said. "God's been faithflil, God is faithful — the fat ■ 
lady hasn't sung yet. So, I know it's not over." 

Teaching two sections of biblical literature this spring, despite doc- 
tor's advice, Collymore said returning to classes has been good for him, 
and "hopefully good for the students." He admitted, "First semester, I 
was bored out of my wits. I enjoy my students more than anything else; 
students give me life and give me hope. They make you realize that ,, 
you can do things you don't think are possible." 

Though it has not prevented his return to the lectern, Collymore's 
failing eyesight has presented an obstacle to his doctorate completion. 
Currently in the midst of his dissertation, Collymore said he "was get- 
ting a little discouraged" because of his eyesight, clinically called low 
vision. With the aid of a new computer and 19-inch monitor provided 
by the Coalition for the Blind and Deaf, Collymore soon will get back 
on the doctoral track. He was also given a text-magnifying device for 
reading printed materials. 

Despite his small anny of high-tech helpers, Collymore admits that 
his progress is "going slow, but it's going." Collymore said he hopes to 
finish his dissertation by December 2000 or January 2001 . He added, 
"Getting back to the students and seeing all the difficulties they over- 
come helps me to know that, with God's help, I will overcome my dif- 
ficulties and get my dissertation done." 

Academics aside, Collymore said that he plans to make summer his 
"rejuvenation time." Anxious to return to his usual exercise regimen, 
Collymore said that he'll be back in the gym as soon as possible. He 
added that he also plans to spend as much time as possible with his 
son, Ruben, who, according to Collymore, is "doing fine," aside from 
being "a little shaken up by all the stuff I went through." As for next 
year, Collymore said that he will continue to "get better, teach Biblical 
literature, and finish his dissertarion. Above all, Collymore is thankful 
for the chance to do so. He said that he owes a special debt to the peo- 
ple in Taylor's business department who worked diligently to raise 
financial support to help pay for his medical care. The person he 
wished to thank most, however, was the Lord. "God carried me through 
all those surgeries," he said. "He did more than just help me. He car- 
ried me."

worked at Taylor for nine 
years, as Olson hall direc- 
tor and director of new 
student orientation, 

resigned at the end of the 
year to be a stay at home 

After nine years, Jane Bowser bids a fond farewell to Taylor University. Jane will be leaving 
her job to become a stay-at-home mother to her adopted daughter. Kendall Renee, who was 
bom on October 13, 1999. Jane started her Taylor career as Olson Hall director, a position that 
she held for five years and will probably be best remembered for her work as the director of 
new student orientation. She refers to her new role as "director of Baby Bowser orientation." 

Jane's favorite part of her job here at Taylor has been getting to know so many students, fac-

"I'm one of those people who bleeds purple and gold," she said. 
Leaving is bittersweet for Jane, but "definitely worth it." Other high- 
lights for Jane included the Welcome Weekend festivities, as well as 
the skits put on by the Probe Players. 

"The square dance is always one of my favorite parts of Probe," Jane 
said. She said that it is "the overall enthusiasm that Probe leaders gener- 
ate on this campus" that will be one of her greatest memories.

1 38 grille 

The Grille. For seniors and a num- 
ber of other lucky Taylor students, it 
is a safe haven, a place of refuge, an 
escape from the bland regimen of the 
dining commons. And for Penny 
Milholland, retail manager of the 
Grille, this refuge has been both her 
job and her home for more than five 

Unbeknownst to many students, 
Milholland is the force that makes the 
Grille run. Her numerous duties 
include staffing, placing food orders, 
cash register reports, care package 
reports, as well as special events man- 
agement. But her main job, she said, 
"is helping students get fed." 

And with an average of 300 to 400 
people who eat at the Grille daily, not 
to mention over 100 students who 
receive sack lunches, Milholland has 
her hands full. In fact, according to 
Milholland, Taylor students go 
through 10 cases of burgers and fries, 
eight to nine cases of chicken, 60 
cases of chips and 18 to 19 trays of 
cookies and desserts - each week. 

Milholland said she enjoys the student union's Grille atmosphere, although she feels 
that it is too small and needs to be updated. "[The Grille] is just the right place for me 
though," she added. "My job matches well with my lifestyle." 

Though Milholland admitted that working at the Grille can sometimes be monotonous 
for both her and her staff, she said that getting to know the students is what makes the job 
worthwhile. "The girls really know our customers," she said, adding that a Grille worker 
is often familiar enough with students that she can hand them their favorite sandwiches 
without even being asked. Most of all, Milholland said that she enjoys the faces she 
knows. She added, "I really like the kids."

looking over the charts 

Dr. John Kennedy studies the chart of the student whom he will now see. Kennedy has been the 
health center physician since 1996, but formed a full-time practice on campus just this year. 

The doctor is in at the Haakonsen HeaUh Center ... full time. On Jan. 1, after operating his practice 
from the Upland Health and Diagnostic Center for two years, Dr. John Kennedy pennanently relo- 
cated his office to the campus health center where he now operates on a full-time basis. 

Kennedy, who has served the health needs of the Taylor community since 1996, initially began at 
Haakonsen, but moved to the newly constructed Health and Diagnostic Center in 1998. Now he is 
excited to return to the environment he calls his favorite. "There are a lot of personal advantages to 
working here full-time," Kennedy comments. "The nursing staff is excellent, and the people are so 

But his increased appearance on campus offers advantages for Taylor, too, including greater con- 
venience and accessibility — for student and staff alike. Although the morning hours are usually 
reserved for patients in the surrounding community, Kennedy is still much more available in emer- 
gencies. He is more accessible to the nursing staff, as well, as Annette Payne, R.N. points out. "If we 
have questions about something, we can bounce them off of him without having to wait." 

Kennedy's more permanent presence at the Haakonsen Health Center has also facilitated greater 
interaction between the Taylor and Upland communities. "It's great PR for Taylor," Lou Roth, R.N., 
remarks. "So many people from the community come in, and the students who are in here will talk 
with them while they wait." 

The doctor's full-time status also contributes to a greater sense of security among students. 
Sophomore Amanda Nelson explains that Dr. Kennedy's more permanent position "makes students 
feel more confident in the treatment they're receiving."

The last time a Taylor men's tennis team won a confer- 
ence championship was in 1996, when this year's seniors 
were freshmen. After two years of starting with high 
expectations only to come up short, the outcome of this 
season was anybody's guess. 

The addition of new players was the variable that would 
detemiine whether the team would finally live up to its 
potential, slip into another second place finish or worse. 

These questions were answered quickly. The 1999 sea- 
son was characterized by dominance. After the first few 
matches of the season, there was little doubt that this team 
would be a force to be reckoned with in conference. 

By the time the conference tournament came around, this 
seasoned team blew through all of its opponents to claim 
the conference crown and earn a spot in the national tour- 
nament in the spring. The new players proved to be the 
missing ingredient needed for a conference win.

The 1999 season brought major changes for the women's tennis team. 
Returning only two players from last year, this team was one of the 
youngest to take the courts in the 22-year history of women's tennis at 

Along with four new players, the team also gained two new coaches, 
Dara and Todd Syswerda. According to this year's captain, Emily Tipton, 
one of the team's main goals was to "win the matches where we were the 
better team." 

The highlight of the year came at the conference tournament in 
Indianapolis. Facing Goshen, one of the toughest teams in the conference, 
the Trojans held out until the last match, finally losing 5-4. 

Beyond the win/loss columns and tournaments, the girls also enjoyed 
"sharing with teammates, helping each other grow in Christ," Tipton said. 
"This, more than anything, brought the team together."

The 1999 Trojans were statistically the most 
dominant football team to ever represent Taylor 
University. In Taylor football's 51 -year history, 
no team has ever advanced as far in the national 
playoffs or had a better record. The Trojans 
rolled to 9-1 in the regular season and were 
ranked as high as 5th on the NAIA national poll. 
Jim Wheeler Memorial Field was the site of the 
first playoff game to be hosted by a Taylor foot- 
ball team. It was also the site of the first playoff 
win in team history. 

"This season was very successful," senior run- 
ning back Quinn Hirschy said. "Our team was 
like no other in the country, because we came 
together as one." 

Indeed, this year's Trojans were better than 
most teams in the country. However, after defeat- 
ing Missouri Valley in the first round of playoffs, 
Taylor traveled to Kentucky to face the No. 1 
seed, Georgetown, for the second round. There, 
the team was defeated, ending its season at 10-2.

At the age of 22, he was diagnosed with 
cancer. Receiving such terrible news was one 
of the toughest things he had ever dealt with. 
He was constantly asking God why he had 
allowed this to happen to him. After strug-

the only thing he could do was live every day 
for Christ — and that is exactly what he did. 

James Wheeler died of cancer on Sept. 19.

This was a landmark year for Taylor volleyball. The 
season saw several changes and some new faces, plus 
the result was one of the most successful records in 
Taylor volleyball history. 

With a preseason ranking of 1 1 th in the NAIA and a 
46-7 record the previous year, the Lady Trojans were 
expected to have another dominating season this year. 
They didn't disappoint. The team pounded through the 
regular season and regional tournament to earn another 
berth in the NAIA nationals for the third time in 
school history. 

"This was the most talented team I have ever played 
on, even on the bench," senior Brittany Huyser said. 
She added that along with a desire to win. the team 
"stressed unity" and "serving God." 

This year's team also boasted first team All- 
Conference selection Amy Croft, honorable mention 
All-Conference Caterine Leiva and All-Conference 
Player of the Year Brittany Huyser.

worth the wait 

here hy the power of prayer 

It has been a long day. Caterine Leiva has 
been dealing with a dilemma. She has achieved 
her dream of attending a Christian university, but 
now is faced with a problem that could jeopar- 
dize that dream. Her home country of Honduras 
wants her and her volleyball skills returned. She 
must now choose between giving up her dream, 
thus returning home, or staying at Taylor and 
never being allowed admittance in to Honduras 

A few hours later, it is time for floor prayer on 
the first floor of Swallow Robin, and now 
Caterine (or "Cat," as her friends call her) is 
smiling. Earlier, she asked for prayer about the 
issue, and her floor mates pledged to remember 
her request throughout the week. 

When her friends ask for an update on the situ- 
ation, Caterine simply says, "The president just 
called and told me it was okay." The other girls 
are stunned. "The president of what?" one asks. 
"Honduras," she says matter-of-factly. 

This event is just the latest in Caterine's long 
journey toward her goal of graduating from a 
Christian university. For most prospective stu- 
dents, the choice of a college is a process that 
takes only a few months. For Caterine, coming 
to Taylor this year is the answer to a 10-year 

Caterine has been dreaming of playing volley- 
ball for Taylor since 1989. It was during that 
summer that Taylor's track team visited her 
hometown of Tegucupigalpa during a missions 
trip. Though she was already a Christian, 
Caterine was greatly impressed by the team's 

One member in particular had a profound 
impact on her Christian life. He prayed with her 
and told her that, if she really wanted to come to 
Taylor, she should start praying immediately for 
God's provision in the matter. 

Thus began a decade of prayer and hard work 
for Caterine. Knowing that sports could be a 
way to earn a scholarship, she worked hard at 
volleyball. She eventually was selected to play 
for the Honduras national team. Soon after, a 
coach for Miami Dade Community College came 
to Honduras to recruit players and selected 
Caterine. After finishing her two years there, 
she received an unexpected scholarship, making 
an education possible. 

Caterine has certainly taken a long road to get 
to Taylor, but she is happy to have trusted God to 
send her. When someone asks her how she came 
to be at Taylor, she is always quick to respond 
with, "I'm here because God wanted me here."

This year's women's soccer team continued with 
surprising successes. In just its fourth year in exis- 
tence, the team rolled to another winning season, 
going 13-4. In its first four years combined, the 
team is 38-24 and in the past two years, it is 23-9. 

This season got off to a blazing start, as the 
Trojans won their first two, then reeled off seven 
straight wins after a gut-checking loss to Indiana 
Wesleyan. After its last two losses of the regular 
season, the team finished out with two more wins 
heading into the finals. 

The first two rounds of the conference tournament 
brought Marian, then Goshen both of who the 
Trojans soundly defeated, 5-1 and 4-1, respectively. 
This set up a rematch in the finals with Indiana 
Wesleyan. In this game, which sophomore Karen 
Phelps called "our best game of the year," the 
Trojans fought hard to avenge their earlier loss, but 
eventually lost 0-2. 

"We really enjoyed being together, both on and off 
the field," junior Karen Staffin said. "Having such a 
good season just made it even more exciting."

The 1999 Taylor men's soccer team went for a roller 
coaster ride during the season. This year's team was 
characterized by streaks of wins and losses, highs and 
lows and battles for consistency. 

The first bright spot came in the opener against 
Indiana Tech where the Trojans prevailed 2-0. 
However, in the following weeks, the team lost seven 
matches in a row before finally ending the skid, defeat- 
ing St. Mary's 1-0 and going on to win two more in a 
row. The team dropped the next four, however, and 
finished the regular season at 5-12. 

In the conference tournament, the Trojans did show 
signs of promise for next year. The team beat the 
favored St. Francis in the opening round before losing 
to Indiana Wesleyan, 2-1. 

Junior Stuart Davis cited the team's lack of experi- 
ence as a cause for its inconsistency. He added that the 
team was "really tight on and off the field" and the 
team "had [its] ups and downs, but we finished well."

the final 

The last game of the season for this year's basketball team 
came down to the last shot. Trying to repay an overtime loss that 
occurred just four days prior, the Trojans played Marian to a 
draw with three seconds left when a last chance three-pointer 
ended the game and the season at with Taylor losing 19-14. 

Senior Brian Ross saw this year's team as unique. "It was an 
enjoyable season. We had the best unity I've seen in my four 
years here," he said. 

The 1999-2000 team displayed more than just talent. This team 
was also about heart. Despite the loss of three seniors from last 
season, these men refused to write it off as a "rebuilding year." 
They fought hard, right out of the gate — reeling off six straight 
wins to start the season and surprising many critics. In the mid- 
dle of the schedule, the Trojans went through weak streaks, los- 
ing three in a row before coming back to win another five 
straight. Near the end of the season, the team intensified its rival- 
ry with Marian College. In three contests, Taylor won the first 
showdown in Odle Gymnasium 82-78 in overtime, before losing 
the last regular season game in overtime and the final game on 
the season-ending buzzer beater.

This year's women's basket- 
ball team took steps to getting 
back to the glory days of 1996 
and 1997. Still a young team 
dealing with injuries, the play- 
ers overcame adversity and 
tough losses at the beginning of 
the year to finish strong. 

In the MCC tournament, the 
Lady Trojans plowed through 
the first round and semifinals, 
beating Marian and Huntington 
by wide margins before losing 
to St. Francis in the final game. 

"We had a slow start, but we 
were playing good teams," 
junior Krista Dennison said . 
"Towards the middle of the sea- 
son, though, we started putting 
our talents together." 

For junior Erin Hutton, some 
of seasons' highs came when 
off of the court. "The most 
important part of being on the 
team for me is the friendships 
I've developed. We've shared 
common struggles and success- 
es that made us a more closely 
knit group."

learning the hard way 

Krista Dennison is a changed woman. She smiles as she 
tells her story, her hands making expressive gestures and 
tossing a basketball back and forth. "I was really mean and I 
knew it," she explains. "People look at me now and think 
I'm crazy because Tm happy, and I really care about them." 

Krista attributes all of the changes in her life to her faith 
in God. She became a Christian during her senior year of 
high school. She went to lunch with one of her friends and 
he gave his testimony, then invited her to church. "I could 
identify with hiin because he used to do some of the same 
things I was doing," Krista explains. 

Before she became a Christian. Krista was deeply 
involved with the party scene. She confesses heavy drink- 
ing and illegal drug use. "I was definitely into the secular 
world," she says. "I was searching for my purpose in this 
world, but I never knew it was God I was looking for." 

As a result of her new faith, she lost many of her friends. 
Krista is the youngest of four children in a family where no 
one is a Christian, so dealing with her family was another 
challenge. "It's hard to go to church by myself and see faini- 
lies there," she admits. "My parents have noticed the change 
in me, and they've started to ask about it more. I'm excited 
to see how God works in it." 

A junior on the women's basketball team, Krista is new to 
Taylor this year. She played basketball at Vincennes in 
Southern Indiana for two years before transferring to Taylor. 
"I wanted to come to Taylor for the Christian atmosphere," 
she says. 

Krista adds that Taylor is not all that she thought it would 
be. After living all her life in a secular environment where 
she was talking to people who knew nothing about the 
gospel, she says that the Christian atmosphere at Taylor is 
outside her comfort zone. But she has experienced Christian 
community with her basketball teammates through team 
devotions and prayer. "My teammates challenge me in my 

faith," Krista says. 

She smiles wider as she talks about basketball. She joined 
her first team when she was eight years old, but she has 
played basketball with the kids in her neighborhood all her 
life. "God has used basketball to teach me lessons and help 
me grow," she says. 

Krista says that basketball at Taylor is very different from 
basketball at Vincennes because the focus is not only on 
winning. "We don't take our talent for granted. Our passion 
for basketball is from God, and we play for Him. He is our 
motivation," she adds. 

As Krista looks forward to her final season playing col- 
lege basketball, she says she has begun to think of who she 
is aside from basketball. She is a sports management 
major, and she would like to own a fitness center one day. 
"My dream has always been to coach basketball," she 

In addition to her passion for basketball, Krista has a pas- 
sion for evangelism. She says that her purpose in life is to 
bring people to God. "It is my responsibility to let them 
know how He has changed me," she explains. 

Krista says the tattoo on her right ankle reminds her of 
this purpose for her life. The tattoo is the Christian fish 
symbol, or icthus, and Greek letters IXOYE mean "Jesus 
Christ, God's son. Savior" Krista says that she has had non- 
Christians ask her what it means, thinking that she belongs 
to a sorority, so she uses it as a witnessing tool. "The true 
meaning is a feeling. It reminds me that God is with me and 
he's never going to leave. It reminds me of when I first gave 
my life to Christ," Krista explains. 

Krista observes that through her past, she has learned 
many lessons that have made her faith stronger. "I've 
learned my lesson the hard way, but it's a good way," she 
says. "It just goes to show how awesome God is, that a per- 
son could change this much."

1999's version of the Jarheads (as they are affectionately known 
around campus) posted another competitive season and showed 
ghmpses of greater things yet to come. The team was ranked as 
high as third nationally and was in the race for the top spot through- 
out the season. Three Jarheads won honors this season, as Gabriel 
Rop was named NAIA and NCCAA Ail-American. Also earning an 
NCCAA All- American nod was Tim Hoeflinger, and Mike Sandelin 
was honored with a scholar athlete distinction. 

"I'm pleased with our season." Said junior Tim Hoeflinger. "We 
had a lot of good performances, and we are bringing back six of our 
top seven runners next year to compete for the top spot." 

In the final meet, the Jarheads finished 7th overall, but just 26 
points shy of 3rd place, which is a narrow margin in a meet. The 
team looks to close that gap next year and make a run for the crown.

"Girls" Cross Countiy" is a temi that is rarely heard around Taylor's 
campus. Instead, one is more likely to hear about the Maddawgs, a 
group of young women known as much for its chanting and barking 
as for its ability to run faster than some four-legged animals. 

The 1999 version of the Mad Dawgs earned on the tradition with 
another successfiji season. Here is a word from team co-captains, 
Kristina Ammemian and Jody Thompson. 

Even though some things change, other things remain the same. 
Maddawgs always run day after day, bark loud and proud and possess 
an inner desire to irk the Jarheads! We will forever be the "naked 
people, " sing on Friday runs and remain friends. 

This year brought about some changes in the program. This season 
God led five new runners and tivo new coaches to the team. With new 
leadership came differences in training strategies — what Maddawg 
could forget the DUNES(!). two-a-days, 50-mile weeks, mile repeats, 
tee-to-greens and Coach Cinder 's monster cookies. 

Even with the changes, the Maddawgs ' unity grew stronger with 
eveiy practice. Eveiy day each of us found ourselves leaving the lock- 
er room after a grueling practice, physically exhausted, emotionally 
stretched, yet spiritually stronger and hoping "I Will Survive. " 

Our season culminated at the Conference meet, where five 
Maddawgs finished under 20 minutes, making the 1999 Maddawgs the 
finest women's cross coimtiy team in Taylor's history. Although we 
didn 't reach our goal of winning conference, we accomplished our 
primaiy goal — glorifying God through our running — and we 
exceeded our expectations for overall team performance, which can be 
summed up with the words of Coach Coy: "Oh Yeah! Oh, Yeah! Oh, 
Yeah! " 

Change is inevitable, but three things will remain steadfast: God is 
the same yesterday, today and forever: cross countiy is eternal; and 
we are the Maddawgs!

par for the 

The 2000 Taylor golf team continued its rise 
to success. Still a very young team, the Trojans 
returned only two seniors this season and no 
juniors. Coach Joe Romine looked to his two 
seniors, Jeff Nicoson and Wes Kent, to provide 
leadership this year and they came through, fin- 
ishing first and third on the team, respectively, 
in the regional tournament. 

For the second year in a row, the team fin- 
ished in second place in the Mid-Central 

Conference, no small feat for a team so young. 

"We had a lot more potential than we 
showed this season," said sophomore Jon Fall. 
"We are young and will have a chance to 
mature and prove ourselves in the next couple 
of years." 

If the team can keep up their consistency in 
the next two years, it is only a matter of time 
before these underclassmen mature and become 
a major contenders to win the conference.

leading in the 

This year's cheerleading squad excelled despite 
many challenges. Below, squad members Heather 
Jaggers and Michelle Toy explain how the team 
overcame the obstacles: 

"We continue to shout our praise even when we 're 
hemmed with troubles, because we know how trou- 
bles can develop passionate patience within us, and 
how that patience in turn forges the tempered steel 
of virtue, keeping us alert for whatever God will do 
next. " 
~Romans 5:3-4 (The Message) 

These verses spoke volumes to our cheerleading 
squad during the 1999-2000 season. This past year 
taught us what it meant to persevere when "hemmed 
with troubles. " Our squad started the season with 

11 members, five guys and six girls. By the end of 
the season, we had lost over half of our squad for 
various reasons, leaving us with only five members. 
This obviously had an overwhelming effect on the 
remaining members, changing the entire structure 
and capabilities as a squad. 

The lack of school participation, leadership 
direction and overall motivation accompanied our 
previous difficulties. But what Satan intends for 
evil, God can use for good. Despite continued dis- 
couragement, God used this season to mold us as 
people of patience and perseverance in the midst of 
troubles. It stretched us as cheerleaders, sisters in 
Christ and children of God to focus on things other 
than ourselves, looking to our Father for strength. 
We will continue to shout our praise of the faithfid- 
ness of the Lord!

Striving to live up to the impressive record of last year, the Trojan base- 
ball team managed to end up with a respectable season, despite keeping 
only two seniors. 

Throughout this season, the team stayed consistent, not letting a loss 
here and there send it into a slump. Carrying momentum into the first 
round of the conference tournament, the Trojans pulled out a hard fought 
win in 13 innings against rival Indiana Wesleyan. The team finished 20- 
23-1 overall and 14-13-1 in the conference. 

"I thought that this was sort of a tough season," junior Scott Blackford 
said. "But as the year progressed, our defense got a lot better, and we 
started to hit the ball better. Overall, it was a good season, but we're hop- 
ing for better things next year."

With the runaway success of the 1999 team, this year's Taylor Softball 
team had much to live up to this season. Losing only two starters fi^om 
the 1999 Conference championship team, this year's squad had high 
hopes for another conference championship, but some close losses and a 
tough schedule made for a somewhat disappointing year. 

"Things just didn't come together for us." said senior Meredith Wolfe. 
"The team as a whole got along well though, which was good because 
had we not, it would have been a long season." 

The Lady Trojans started the season strong, going 5-3 through the 
first eight games. However, the team hit a ten game skid thereafter 
from which they never quite fliUy recovered. 

In the MCC Conference tournament as Taylor jumped out to 4-0 lead 
against Indiana Wesleyan in the opening round but could not hold on, 
losing 7-4. The Lady Trojans were hit by another late-game rally in 
their final game against Goshen, losing 7-4 to end the 2000 season with 
an overall record of 13-2 1 and a conference record of 7-7.

This year's mens' track team was a dominant force, not 
only in the Mid Central Conference, but in the National 
Christian College Athletic Association, as well. The 2000 
season saw several records broken and another conference 
championship go to the Trojans. 

Senior Darren Youngstrom set two records at the Indiana 
Little State Meet in Indianapolis, blazing to a time of 
52.05 seconds in the 400 meter hurdles and 14.04 in the 
110 meter dash. "Our team loves to compete and see the 
point totals add up throughout the day," Youngstrom says. 
"Coach Coy and Coach Bowers keep us going throughout 
the meets and encourage us in their own ways." 

For senior Sammy Siratei, this season was full of excite- 
ment. "I never thought I would run for a team that made 
the top three in the nation many times. I'm excited."

Not to be outdone by its male counter- 
parts, the Taylor women's track team post- 
ed one of their best seasons to date. The 
team benefitted from experienced seniors 
like Kristina Ammerman and Caroline 
Stringfellow, and also by talented under- 
classmen like junior Tracy Hale and fresh- 
man Ursala Chase. 

Intense training was the norm for this 
team, and their efforts paid off this season. 

The Lady Trojans finished 3rd in at the 
NCCAA meet, their highest finish ever for 
this event and also finished 3rd at the 
MCC meet. 

"Taylor track and field has been a truly

at his broken foot. It is just a few days before the 
track-and-field season begins, and Taylor's star 
athlete in the shot-put is coming to terms with his 

"I've never really been injured before in my 
career. Now I have this." He speaks in grammati- 
cally perfect English, his nationality showing only 
by a thick accent. 

If Stevimir, or Steve as he is called by most at 
Taylor, can return to top form, the Trojan track 
team will again be the favorite for the shot-put 
event in the national meet. Even more pressing, 
though, is his other reason to heal. He is headed 
to Sydney, Australia, in July for the 2000 Olympic 

The upcoming Olympics are the culmination of 
a dream that began when Steve joined his first 
track-and-field club in high school. Steve eventu- 
ally became good enough at the shot-put event to 
start looking for scholarships. 

However, these were nearly impossible to find 
in his homeland. So he headed to Canada and 
eventually found a place at Taylor. 

When Steve first heard about Taylor, he was 
skeptical. "I thought it was a Bible school," he 

says, laughing, "somewhere you go to be a priest." 
Despite these apprehensions, Steve eventually 
contacted the track-and-field coach, Chris Coy. 

"He just found us on the web," Coy says. . 
"When he first told me how far he threw, I 
thought he had said nine meters, so I didn't think 
I would be able to get him on here. When I talked 
to him again though, I found out he had said nine- 
teen meters. That's when I started getting 

During the summer of 1999, Steve was able to 
take his abilities one step further. At the world 
university championships in Seville, Spain, he 
threw the shot 65 1/2 feet. This was enough to 
beat the Olympic standard by I 1/2 feet and to 
secure his spot in the Olympic Games. 

When asked about his thoughts on the Games, 
Steve responds humbly. "I would like to be able to 
compete in the afternoon," he says. "They have a 
qualifying round for every event in the morning, 
and then in the afternoon, they televise the finals. 
I just want to be able to compete with the best in 
the afternoon." 

Despite Steve's concern about his injuries, he 
is expected to be in top form in time for the 
Olympics, getting his chance to throw in the 
afternoon, as one of the best.

This year's lacrosse club team had some major suc- 
cesses, while generally having a good time. 

Finishing at 4-3 for the season, this fledgling sport 
gained even more credibility with a victory over Ball 
State. "It was great to beat a team from a much larger 
school," senior Greg Storrs said. "It gave us more con- 
fidence for the rest of the season." 

On the heels of its big win over BSU, the team made 
the most of its momentum in a win over Wheaton 
College before losing to another large school, 

To finish out the season, Taylor played Calvin. 
Losing its goalie, senior Scott Rustulka, mid-game, to

Taylor hosted this show for the first time in seven 
years at JTL Stables in Marion. The team finished 
near the middle of the pack at sixth, but perfonned 
well individually. 

"We had some bad luck with our picks," Nye said. 
"Our coach has to decide which rider's score will 
count for the team before the show starts. Even 
though we rode well individually, our best riders' 
scores didn't always count toward our team score." 

Scoring aside, the team gained some new members, 
and the returning participants improved from last year. 
making for another memorable season.

James kutnow 
student body president 




on the ^kutting' edge 

We often define him as the familiar face that repre- 
sents us to the faculty and as the hands that keep the 
student body spinning. Actually, he is a punk from 
Philly, who likes G-love and has two sisters, Jen and 
Mandy. He attended senior prom with Taylor student 
Dana Wilson, and, during his years at Taylor, he spent a 
summer in Israel and a semester in China. But student 
body president James Matthew Kutnow III has managed 
to secure friends crossing class, age and gender bound- 
aries throughout campus. 

His good friend Phil Gallagher says, "Kutnow's just 
got a great heart." And closest to James' heart is a core 
group of guys that has come together over the past four 
years at Taylor, of which James is a part. From the nur- 
turing environment of this group rose Taylor's student 
body president. Being supported by the prayers and 
love of these friends, among others. James has lead the 
students. As student body president, he is in charge of 
Taylor Student Organization, overseeing the 1 1 branch- 
es of the executive cabinet. He also attends and partici- 
pates in various faculty meetings. 

Alongside his responsibilities as president, James has 
been planning his summer wedding to '99 graduate Erin 
Johnson, a woman he describes as "beautiful and very 
devoted to God. " Since his parents' move to become 
full-time missionaries in Italy this year, James has 
made the transition from pastor's kid to missionary's 
kid. On top of all that, he is searching for a teaching 
job to start after his graduation this May. 

He has a philosophy about his job as president, 
summed up in three words: visibility, vulnerability and 
involvement. One of James' favorite parts of his job is 
the time that he spends talking to and being mentored 
by men such as Jay Kesler, Walt Campbell and Daryl 
Yost. He says, "I am learning a lot from their experi- 
ence and wisdom." And that's what it seems to be all 
about — the wisdom and the example of those who have 
gone before us. 

In the words of Phil Gallagher, James' accomplish- 
ments have been "brotherhood, friendship and vision." 
Throughout the years, James' dream has been to "shape 
Taylor as an output, and minister to the campus."

Many Taylor Chorale inembers ask themselves 
this question as the words roll off their lips, "How 
can I keep from singing?" This lyric, written by 
Robert Lowry, is only one of the songs that 
Chorale sang during its spring concert series to 
various local churches, in addition to an Easter 
break trip to New York City. Stopovers on the 
Easter trip included concerts in Pennsylvania and 
Ohio, with an excursion to see "Les Miserables" 
in New York. 

In addition to spring concerts. Chorale per- 
formed for homecoming with alumni Chorale 
members. But the biggest highlights of the fall 
semester for Chorale was its performance of 
Handel's Messiah, which was accompanied by the 
Fort Wayne Philhannonic. 

Reflecting on the musical group, senior Jason 
Fletcher says, "It's an incredible experience glori- 
fying God together." And that is the group's pur- 
pose — to glorify God through vocal music.

Flipping through the channels, you stop at Channel 7 and see familiar faces reporting 
Taylor news. At Airband you laugh at the "Real World" videos. In chapel, you see stu- 
dents behind video cameras, capturing the chapel speaker on video. 

Who does all of this and why? TCS, Taylor Cable Service, does it because its mem- 
bers love producing television and videos. 

"I can't not be involved," TCS station manager, Joylane Bartron, said. 

"TCS is a great opportunity to learn about the television field and gain practical expe- 
rience that will help me in the future," TCS member Justin McLaughlin said. 

TCS is Taylor's campus TV station. Many students are involved in managing, produc- 
ing, editing and reporting for the station. Bruce Johnson, a mass communications profes- 
sor, has been the station's sponsor for two years. 

This year TCS focused on its news program called Frontline News. This program fea- 
tures mostly Taylor news, but off-campus news is reported when it relates to students. 

The station has been involved inore than ever this year in campus video productions. 
It produced all of the "Real World" videos for Airband this fall. That project alone took 
over 150 hours of students' time. The station also produced videos for 90s Night, 
Nostalgia Night and Youth Conference. TCS also covers home football and basketball 
games, and it has shown a series of educational films. 

Off-campus, TCS has had opportunities to produce videos, as well. The First Church 
of God East Central Indiana in Muncie asked TCS to produce a promotional video for its 
choir. TCS also created a video of the Upland Labor Day Parade, which was sold to 
community residents. 

Taylor students often see cameras set up in chapel or at special events. Behind those 
cameras are TCS members who are involved, not because of the money or the recogni- 
tion, but because they love it. Many students are involved because they want experience 
for their future careers. Students do not have to be mass communication majors to partic- 
ipate. All students are welcome to be a part of TCS, even if they have no previous 

According to Bartron, Channel 7 is designed to meet the needs of students while pro- 
ducing quality TV.

a trip to remember 

Legs turned to Jell-0 as 63 PAs pedaled their 
bikes exhaustedly into the church outside of 
Mackinaw Island, Mich. The two-day trip from 
Upland to Mackinaw had been completed with 
a grueling 60-mile bike ride, a traditional rite of 
passage into a year of service as a PA. The ride, 
meant to uniquely bond the PAs together, did 
just that, according to Jackie Timm, Second 
West Olson PA. 

■'Going 60 miles on those bikes really brings 
you together," she says. "Accomplishing that 
challenge together and the encouragement you 
get from each other is so bonding. I met so 
many amazing people that I wouldn't have got- 
ten to know if I'd have had to make the initia- 
tive myself 

The rewards far outweighed the costs for this 
trip. The tight bus that carted the leaders to 
Michigan turned into a place where the bonds 
of friendship were first woven. "We hardly 
knew each other, but we got to know each other 
because we were in such close quarters. We 
just talked and talked," Timm says. 

After the long bike ride, the day that the PAs 
spent on the island was a treat worth the work. 
"It was so gorgeous," Timm says. "There was 
a seven-mile bike trail all around the island. 

and there were rocks and beaches. It was a 
great time to regroup with your friends, too." 
In the evening, the students took time out to 
worship with each other and start the year off 
with some time with God. 

The trip stressed the importance of teamwork 
and the support one can receive through simple 
encouragement from friends. "There is some- 
thing about seeing another PA across campus 
that is so encouraging. It's hard to know what 
it's like to be a PA unless you are one, so see- 
ing a familiar face is so nice," Timm says. And 
the Mackinaw bike trip is where those faces 
started to become familiar. 

"The bike trip really brings people together," 
Timm says. "There are 63 PAs from all over 
campus who would never know each other if it 
weren't for this. It brings us together as a team 
and as a group, building the support system for 
going into the year. It helps us not be so 

As the bus chugged to a start for the return 
trek back to Upland, it was no longer full of 
strangers cramped together in a tiny little space. 
The vehicle was, instead, stuffed with 63 
friends, ready to start the year refreshed and

cross cultural ministry 

Lighthouse teams go out each Januaiy to gain cross-cultural understanding 
and experience, to promote interpersonal development, and to provide an 
outreach ministry to those around the world. This year only two teams went 
out because of the Y2K concern. The teams stayed on the North American 
continent as they traveled to Mexico and Arizona. 

Taylor students were able to impact many lives through their street evange- 
lism, their work projects, their vacation Bible school programs and simply 
their presence. 

The Mexico team, led by Jeremy Diller and Tricia Taylor, traveled to 
Reynosa their first week and ministered in an orphanage. There they led 
vacation Bible school and spent time with the kids. The second week they 
went to MataiTioros where they stayed at the Adventures In Missions (AIM) 
base. While there, they served the community by building a house and lead- 
ing a vacation Bible school. The third week they stayed in Hidalgo and visit- 
ed different villages there. No churches were allowed in the villages that 
were visited the third week, so the team's programs had a large impact on the 
people. They worked at two churches pouring concrete floors. Taylor stu- 
dents were able to show their compassion for the Mexican people in very 
real and practical ways. 

A member of the Mexico team had an English Bible the whole trip, but had 
not given it away because she believed that God would lead her to give it to 
a specific person. The last night of the trip, a woman came to a team mem- 
ber, and asked, in Spanish, for an English Bible. It was obvious to the team 
that God was at work through this experience. 

The team was able to show God's love to the people just by being there. 
Only a few on the team spoke Spanish well enough to communicate, but the 
team's presence made a big impact on the people, in spite of the language 

The trip ministered to those in Mexico, as well as those who were part of 
the team. The team's eyes were opened to a variety of things on the trip, 
including how God works in people's lives and why the Mexican people need 
God in their lives.

lives in inner city Marion. 

A college student stood with her fingers intertwined with a little girl from inner- 
city Marion. They were singing "Jesus loves the little children, all the children of 
the world, red and yellow, black and white," when the little girl began shouting, 
"Black and white, black and white. Jesus loves black and white!" This little girl 
was introduced to Jesus' unconditional love through a group of Taylor students that 
volunteers time each week to minister to her and over 100 other inner-city children. 

ReaLife is a ministry designed to help "build relationships with kids and, through 
that relationship, show God's love," ReaLife student director. Jamie Otten, said. 

About 30 Taylor students take five hours out of their day on either Tuesday or 
Wednesday night each week to travel to Marion to participate in the program. The 
evening consists of worship songs, games, a Bible lesson, a snack and discussion. 
The Taylor students serve as small group leaders. They take turns teaching lessons 
and always lead a small group discussion. 

About 70 percent of the kids are from unchurched families, and many of the chil- 
dren do not have a loving home. So ReaLife may be the only place where they 
receive love. 

Small group leader Molly Turner said, "Seeds are being planted. I have to realize 
that I'm there to love them." This year there have been approximately eight chil- 
dren saved, but many more have been introduced to Jesus' love. 

Cheryl Olson, a ReaLife small group leader, said that ReaLife is a ministry 
because it gives Taylor students the chance to reach out to kids by spending time 
with them and modeling God's love through their actions. 

ReaLife sponsors activities for the kids other than the weekly meetings. This 
year they had a pool party and a pizza party. The annual Taylor Christmas Gift 
drive is sponsored by ReaLife. This is an opportunity for Taylor students to give 
something tangible to children in need. 

Jamie Otten said of ReaLife, "I love it, and I've been blessed for the time I've

sun, skis and servant leadership 

What do prayer, cook-outs, mission 
statements and water skis have in com- 
mon? For the members of Taylor 
Student Organization's Executive 
Cabinet, these seemingly random words 
represent four integral components of 
their fall retreat. 

On Aug. 27, the cabinet headed north 
to Kendallville, Ind., for a weekend of 
planning and playing at the lake cottage 
of executive assistant Stephanie White's 
grandmother. While there, the cabinet 
spent much of its time in planning ses- 
sions, formulating a mission statement 
and identifying the organization's goals 
for the 1999-2000 school year. 

It was these meetings that really "set 
the year off to a good start," according 
to James Kutnow, student body presi- 
dent. "We were able to determine our 
objectives for the year and review our 
individual responsibilities and duties," 
he asserts. 

But the weekend wasn't strictly task- 

oriented. Equally important was the 
bond created among the cabinet mem- 
bers around the grill and on the waters 
of Witmer Lake. 

Wliite believes the weekend was espe- 
cially important because it gave the cab- 
inet "a chance to hang out and have fiin. 
... We were able to establish the friend- 
ships that have continued throughout the 

Whether it was by praying for the stu- 
dent body or helping student union coor- 
dinator Jeff Huitsing search for the wave 
runner keys he dropped in the lake, the 
weekend retreat facilitated a sense of 
unity among the group. And this unity 
continued through the entire course of 
the year. Jaillene Erickson, vice presi- 
dent of leadership services, agrees that 
the retreat set the pace for the year. She 
believes, "It united us as a real team. We 
could relate better and come together in 
pursuit of the same goals."

"We're trying to be more public this year," says senior Taylor 
Senate chairman Steve Klipp, "In previous years. Senate has typ- 
ically done the outside dirty work." 

But not this year. Klipp says that his group of 17 senators is 
trying to be more available and open about what it is doing this 

Senate is composed of one representative per 100 residents. 
Students mn for office in the spring, with each resident hall vot- 
ing for his or her choice of senators. The group then meets every 
week the following year and fonns various committees to over- 
see special projects and proposals for Taylor's campus and sm- 
dent body. 

Once an issue is proposed, the group researches it and attempts 
to gain faculty and staff support. If it is passed, student body 
president James Kutnow is the first to review it and may either 
veto or pass it. President Jay Kesler is ultimately the last in line 
to approve it. 

Senate secretary and senior Torrey Barger says they had a great 
group of senators working hard this year. "If you want anything 
done, go to your senators! "' she remarks. 

Sophomore Lindsay Thomas says her time on Senate was a 
rewarding experience. She says, "It's a great way to meet people 
and work with TSO ... I want to be involved."

the link between 

... and the woman behind it 

Junior LaTonya Taylor has played a major role 
in the publication "The Link Between" since her 
freshman year. And she does not plan to stop now. 

"The Link Between" is a division of the multi- 
cultural cabinet. It is published once a semester, 
though Taylor anticipates making it more frequent 
next year. About the purpose of the publication, 
Taylor says, "What it comes down to is the impor- 
tance of shared stories. A lot of times, rather than 
focusing on specific issues, we just have people 
share actual stories about their lives. These shared 
stories are essential. That's my philosophy." 

Taylor first became involved in "The Link 
Between" her freshman year, when she was the 
assistant editor. She says, "I got the job because of 
my interest in writing and my interest in address- 
ing important issues through the written word." 

Last year and this year, Taylor has served as editor And she also 
serves as her own staff. So, she writes and performs the lay-out for 
the newsletter in the Education Technology Center But people are 
welcome and encouraged to submit their ideas. Taylor, who will 
probably return as editor next year, says, "Actually, we did have 
some people contribute restaurant reviews and some personal 
essays." She pauses and squints a bit. "They were very insightfiil," 
she says, nodding. 

Taylor's favorite part of the job is working with others. She says, 
"The best part is working with people and helping them share their 
thoughts about what is important to them." Thinking of the worst 
part of the job, though, was not as easy. 

"The Link Between" is distributed in the residence halls, dining 
commons and student union.

pre-med majors 


realization of a dream 

For many pre-med majors, getting 
accepted to medical school after col- 
lege graduation is the fijifillment of 
a lifelong dream. Below, senior 
Amber Bourne tells how this has 
been true in her case. 

Ever since I was in third grade, 
I 've wanted to be a doctor You know 
how you ask little kids what they 
want to be when they grow up, and 
get the typical "fireman, airplane 
pilot, detective, doctor" response? 
Well, mine went from being "cute " 
to being reality! It just stuck — a 
desire that God planted so young 
and continued to nurture throughout 
high school and the stereotypical 
change-your-majoi -even -other- 
week college years. I had an imme- 
diate love for science and helping 
people and fixing things. The MCAT 
presented my first major challenge 
to a lifelong dream. I couldn 't have 
done as well as I did without the 

continual encouragement and prayer 
support of my family, friends and 

I know that God was with me, and 
he is faithful to complete the work 
that He's called us to if only we sup- 
ply Him with a willing heart. My 
favorite verse has always been 
Proverbs 3:5.6, "Trust in the Lord 
with all your heart, and lean not on 
your own understanding. In all your 
ways ackfwwledge Him. and He will 
make your paths straight. " 

After taking the MCAT .spring of 
my Junior year I applied for early 
admission at Indiana University 
over the summer My inten'iew was 
with two physicians on the admis- 
sions committee who would present 
my application before the board, and 
it could not have been more comfort- 
able or encouraging. God truly 
blessed it. I received my letter of 
acceptance on Oct. 1. 1999. I still 

remember opening it at the post 
office and the hugs and cheers from 
friends who had shared in each step 
of the process through their love and 
prayers. It was a truly joyous 

I will begin classes at the 
Bloomington campus in August of 
2000: gross anatomy, physiology, 
biochemistiy, histology, microbiolo- 
gy and doctor/patient relationship. 
God has continued his faithfulness 
in providing a roommate, an apart- 
ment and even the added blessing of 
Christian friends. I know that many 
more challenges lay in store, but 
continue to place my trust in Him 
who has guided each step up to this 
point. I'm so veiy thankful for my 
Taylor education and the people of 
this community who have been such 
an integral part of God's plan in 
shaping my life and helping me to 
realize the dreams He has for me.
